comment Adding SSL to existing applications
I am using the term "SSL" as the generic term for the whole family (especially when responding to someone who apparently does the same). See this for details.

comment Conflict between cipher-suite and certificate
From here, ssl.gstatic.com uses a certificate that contains an EC public key, so everything appears to be in order.

comment For maximum security is it best to link OpenSSL libraries statically or dynamically?
There is reputedly only one software without bugs (Metafont, written by Donald Knuth). It is possible to write safe C code by being careful; but, apparently, it is not humanly possible to be sufficiently careful throughout the whole development of any significant piece of software. However, competent programmers can be good at leaving few bugs, and fixing them promptly when detected. Which is enough in practice, as long as the patch installation process is sleek and slight (hence dynamic linking).
