"I'm pretty sure the poster was talking about the underlying protocols (TCP/IP, UDP) whose development indeed was funded by DARPA."

I'm pretty sure he wasn't (or had no idea what he was talking about) as those underlying protocols have nothing at all to do with any security issues in HTTPS or other protocols used in the WWW.

Besides, HTTPS wasn't invented until later. Early WWW didn't have it. It didn't have any Javascript or Flash either.
