Just reading  on how the NSA/GHCQ have backdoors in HTTPS and commercial VPNs. That article was a bit sparse on clear technical information; is it too smug to think that, as someone using open source software almost completely, this is Somebody Else's Problem? Any suggestions for a good, up to date article that describes what is potentially compromised, and what is still secure? Something at the level of someone who knows the difference between their public and private key, and knows that sha256 is better than md5 but if asked why would have to lamely tell you: "'cos I heard clever people tell me so". Darren P.S. This is a technical question, with the context of Linux users; if you want to discuss the ethics and politics surrounding government espionage, I suggest you either do it elsewhere, or at least start an "OT" thread...  http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/05/nsa-gchq-encryption-codes-security
