Does anyone know how much IPv4 space is allocated *specifically* to cater
to the fact that HTTPS requires a dedicated IP per DNS name?
Is that a statistically significant percentage of all the IPs in use?
I have no numbers, but my gut feeling is that there are a lot more
eyeballs than web servers with lots of IPs.
Wasn't there something going on to make HTTPS IP muxable? How's that coming?
SNI; RFC 3546
How fast could it be deployed?
The RFC is just shy of 10 years old, so that's like a baby compared to
It is mostly deployed, but there's still a fair number of old clients
that don't support it. WinXP+IE is probably the biggest fail, followed
by Android < 3.0 and BlackBerry.
