Hi.. the developers of, the Firefox add-on that makes certificate updates a bit more transparent, are at the camp, too. Our friends from Telecomix suggested we should make a distributed/social version of Certificate Patrol that takes into account which certificates other people have seen, without exposing your browsing habits to any central server.

Also we are working on a version integrated into our operating system so that any SSL/TLS-encrypted connection of any web browser, email or chat software can be patrolled, not just the ones Mozilla makes.

We're also interested in general talk on improving the certification situation.
