comment How is SSL secure from rogue Certificate Authorities?
Short answer: It is not secure against rogue CAs. But Q can't look exactly like C, it'll have N as root and not A.

comment Best Asymmetric Encryption Standard for Communications?
I'd look at OTR and CurveCP. Not necessarily because they're what you want to implement, but because they're interesting to study. CurveCP has similar goals as SSL/TLS but is much easier to understand. OTR is interesting because it offers strong forward secrecy and deniability.

comment If we can find prime numbers larger than 17 milion digits, why can't we find all 1024bit primes?
You are able to tell me a 100 digit number. So why can't you tell me all 9 digit numbers?
