Hi lists,

a few days ago, I stated that StartSSL was generating private keys
server-side. This news was published by Heise and not verified well enough
by me (however, it looked as though they did it, because that stupid WebKit
browser which must not be named did not look like being busy).

Heise demented the article a few days later, so do I, as after another
verification, StartSSL does not seem to have comparable security leaks.

Cheers,
Nik
