Default Google researchers propose fix for ailing SSL system

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/11...poses_ssl_fix/

Quote:
Security researchers from Google have proposed an overhaul to improve the security of the Secure Sockets Layer encryption protocol that millions of websites use to protect communications against eavesdropping and counterfeiting.

The changes are designed to fix a structural flaw that allows any one of the more than 600 bodies authorized to issue valid digital certificates to generate a website credential without the permission of the underlying domain name holder.
