[ NNSquad ] Proposed SSL enhancement to reject forged certificates

Proposed SSL enhancement to reject forged certificates

http://j.mp/KMoruV  (ars technica)

   "Researchers have proposed an extension to the Internet's foundation of
    trust that's designed to root out fraudulent secure sockets layer
    (SSL) certificates before attackers can use them to impersonate online
    banks and other sensitive websites.  The proposal, which was submitted
    Wednesday to the Internet Engineering Task Force, is designed to mend
    a fundamental crack in the SSL system, which is also referred to by a
    successor protocol called TLS, or transport layer security."
