Given what I know about encryption, my bovine excrement detector is
definitely getting a reading here, but not full scale yet. From what I
remember reading about SSL, I think the conventional encryption cipher
chosen is the best common cipher between the browser and the server in
all cases, but it's possible the certificate may have something to do
with it.

I may do some experiments with TinyCA and see what I get.
