Longitude prize

This is why we need an alternative to the certificate authority model. Currently we have something that has some of the mechanisms and appearance of security but with too many caveats. There is far too much trust placed in the hands of too many organisations, many of whom are not obviously and transparently known to be trustworthy and some of whom are known to be systematically or ideologically compromised.

Consider including this problem on the longitude prize list?
