We just did our quarterly certificate count, and for the first time in history a CA has passed the half million mark for active SSL Certificates. Just in case you're wondering, it's VeriSign. An active SSL Certificate is a certificate in its validity period that has not been revoked, and therefore this certificate count implies that VeriSign SSL is securing over half a million Web servers simultaneously. Right now.

I don't know about you, but I think that's pretty cool.
