SSL isn't good enough. Your website can be hacked.
Help solve the problem by advocating these RFCs:

TLSA (formerly DANE for DNS) Fixes the hackable CA problem

TLS-OBC: Fixes TLS, and the Related Domain Cookie Attack


About me
I have no relation to the above sites; I am just an advocate

Why "makerofthings7"? It's a challenge to "make seven things in my life of significant quality and value". Who knows if those things will take the form of software, art, or people. (I'm not married, no kids yet)
