"but offers no proper solution to the stupidly lax design of certificate issuing"

There is no "proper solution to the stupidly lax design of certificate issuing"

There can be no "proper solution to the stupidly lax design of certificate issuing"

Not because it's an intractable problem of course. This is simply how the "system" was contrived to be. Contrived back in the days when NSA was quaintly calling itself NIST as it set about scuttling public cryptography.

Think you can come up with a better system? You probably can. Probably in less than five minutes. Think you can get your solution adopted?

All your internets are belong to U.S.
