Hm, is it? If you use good old traditional telnet you know you're typing on an
insecure connection. If you use ssh you expect it to be secure and indeed ssh
throws up big errors if it fails to get a secure connection -- it doesn't
silently fall back to an insecure connection.
Actually even the example given before of the browsers follows this model. If
you visit an insecure web site you get your web page. But if you visit a
secure web site with a bogus certificate you get a big warning.
Ask me about EnterpriseDB's 24x7 Postgres support!
