Here is a post by Adam Langley, a transport security person at Google. These were his notes before a talk that he did at HOPE9 last week. HOPE stands for Hackers on planet Earth.
Adam’s talk does not focus on CAs and certificates. His notes deal with HTTPS issues and he really pushes for the use and adoption of HSTS. This information would be good for those people that deploy SSL/HTTPS on their Web servers.
Please take a look.
