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)

comment Is there a field guide to ECC for the IT Security layman?
@Thomas FYI The +3 votes came from Security.SE, not the more discriminating Crypto.SE site, who could (and probably already did) write a book on this. I'd have to think about how to slice this up, but feel free to edit as you think ...

Suppose I want to create that situation, I'd need a low exponent? How low would be appropriate?

On a related note, I'm aware that combining different hash techniques doesn't mean fewer collisions, and therefore not beneficial.
