comment Did US and UK spy agencies defeat privacy and security on the internet?
Regarding what you typed in bold, you seem to believe it strongly so I'm not trying to disuade... who knows what the NSA wants? Sometimes they are looking for information for romantic interests of bored bureaucrats (this is published). A secret and unmonitored agency unhampered by oversight can do anything that the individuals that make it up feel like doing-- extortion, theft, harassment. If the secret police were a good idea for everyone, it would have been implemented sooner.

comment I just send username and password over https. Is this ok?
re: why log the password? Logging of passwords and other sensitive information usually happens by accident (maybe someone elses accident, too!). So you can't make a decision of "I will not log the password" and be able to guarantee it won't be logged. Hashing it will guarantee that the plain text pwd won't be logged.
