comment Is using a CA more secure if I'm self-signing anyway?
Yes, but compromise of a single certificate's private key equals compromise of a single server, whether the cert was self-signed itself or issued from a self-signed CA, doesn't it?

But even if you use a CA to issue a certificate, the certificate's private key is still needed at the server so it can use the certificate, so the private key is still subject to being compromised, right?

comment Are WhatsApp or Telegram secure enough to use for office communication?
+1 for TextSecure, except it's still Android-only at the moment. The only advantage Telegram has is that it's also available on iOS, desktop and Web.

comment Is Telegram secure?
@Luc the point that Terry mentioned, which I wholeheartedly agree, is that if (when) an actual issue is found, it may be too late if it has already got critical mass, and because messages are stored on the server.

comment Is a HMAC-ed password is more secure than a bcrypt-ed or scrypt-ed password?
So the difference between 1) the "work factor" in adaptive key derivation functions and 2) the number of iterations in a general H(H(H(m+s))...) hashing — is that in the first option, the work factor is stored along the hash so you can re-hash (verify) passwords with differing number of iterations?
