How long before we find out that CAs are part of the whole spying industry also?
There is very high likelihood that they are . Verisign was founded by a group of ex CIA/FBI directors back in the 90's, who resigned to start Verisign. This happened after the Clipper chip program got canned. (The US government wanted to build a legal backdoor into every computer running the Clipper cryptographic system.)
Its the same reason that they bought Thawte from Mark Shuttleworth for about a $1 billion dollars. He controlled a significant amount of HTTPS encryopted HTTPS traffic via his start-up.
I suspect that Most HTTPS traffic can be decrypted on the fly by the US spy organisations.
