Google Looking at the past few week of Google news, you'll be forgiven for thinking Google doesn't do anything else beyond making Android. While there's sexier stuff going on within Google, the company is also still trying to improve its core user service: search. They've launched encrypted search today, and it will be rolled out across the world in the coming days.

Well, depending on bit strength, self signed certificates are just fine. I was focusing on the general network so my mind was thinking in terms of the third party certificate a big name site would get. Self signed certificates tend to scare average users (they involve a warning which involves reading). If you visit Google and are asked to accept a self signed cert, you should have questions. That's also why I suggested reducing the cost of a cert signing as it's currently an overpriced protection racket in most cases and especially if you want to use SSL/TLS that is actually safe.
