comment Self-signed certificates not working over Internet?
@BenVoigt I suggest you read the links I gave in my answer. Or listen to the podcast I linked to. None of this is actually very relevant to the OP's question though, so I'm going to leave it at this.

@BenVoigt that's not true. It's still the case that the connection is confidential and cannot be eavesdropped, which is what proponents of "https everywhere" are mainly concerned with. There are plenty of trivial websites for which having to prove their identity is unnecessary overkill.

@WoJ you're right. That's what I meant to imply, but I should make that clearer.

@NeilSmithline No, the page ID is public.

I don't think I need the page ID to be hidden (I can't think why, it wouldn't prevent any attack I can see; the page ID would be in the URL so it is public anyway), so I don't think the ID being in cleartext is a problem.

It sounds like an HMAC would be a better fit. Unless you think this might perform much better?
