BBC reporting on a new SSL related initiative that should help provide
more secure access to websites.

Insecure websites to be named and shamed after checks
The first part would be to run automated tools against websites to test
how well they had implemented SSL
The second part of the initiative concerns the running of the bodies,
known as certificate authorities, which guarantee that a website is what
it claims to be.

Should help build on HTTPS Everywhere & the Decentralized SSL
Observatory

Interesting to see Mozilla's Firefox will no longer be displaying
favicons, as unscrupulous websites are using them to show padlocks to
give the impression of an SSL connection.
