I don't see why. My server uses a valid SSL certificate, signed by a
known CA. It's a new server so maybe there are still some dns
propagation issues. However, I just tested it using
http://foaf.me/index.php as URL for service provider and it worked (I
got logged into foaf.me). (btw, Safari might have some residual SSL
information from the last time you tried to connect and the site had a
self-signed certificate?)

Can someone else verify this issue please?

That's the error code when the public key modulus doesn't match the one
in the webid. (do they match?)

Yes, I totally agree. I plan to implement it next!

> 2. I think foafssl.org should be somewhat different from what it is now, in particular it should  have a login landing page to show people what they are logging in under, and if possible allow them  logout. The problem with an immediate redirect is that people never see where they are logging into. As a result they may automatically be logged into all sites with the same id.
I think this issues isn't not really related to foafssl.org, but it's
more of a general issue on how IdPs should behave. Maybe we could
discuss this further soon.
