Bob,

Not to complain, but after chatting up about site security, it begins to get a bit funny logging in to post about security on a site without any.

Any aspirations to get a signed SSL?

Yeah... faced an unavoidable delay yesterday, but maybe sometime this afternoon....

Let me ask you Dark. Exactly why do you feel a cert is necessary for Shell City? Do you think someone might want to login - for example -- as John, and cause a lot of trouble? (How could you tell the difference between the real and the counterfeit John anyway then?)

I really don't think that it matters a whole ton, except for the fact that it seems highly hypocritical to talk about security when there isn't even the option to log in securely. Personally, I don't even really care if the cert is signed or not since we aren't transmitting credit card info or anything, I just think the option speaks for itself.

I though you were joking until you made the second comment.

I think it's pretty unnecessary here. Somebody might sniff a password, so what. I think it would probably be easier for somebody to brute force them anyway.
