When someone pushes centralization, one, security-focused coder shows up to gripe about that. For one forum, a recent post doing pushing the opposite of what was becoming a commonly-linked approach to CA’s apparently dropped the Tangent-in-the-Middle attacks down to two comments on that thread says two sources of mine looking at the monitor.

        Add a 301 “Permanent Redirect”
