On the 17th of this month, at the invitation of Comodo, the major CAs 
and browser vendors (including mozilla.org) are having a meeting in New 
York to discuss some of the issues surrounding the future of SSL and 
trust on the Internet.

As a way of working out my thinking on this, I've written a paper called 
"Improving Authentication On The Internet":

It starts with the basics, mostly as a way to confirm that my 
understanding of the current situation is correct. All comments, both 
correcting my facts and giving alternative views, are very welcome.
