I have found that the phone works well in such sitiuations. After all,
we're not trying to produce a razzle-dazzle crypto authentication show
here, just implement good business practices.

The Thawte web pages don't give much info on how this works and they
require you to sign up before you can read their "free" guide. No thank

that route, it is better to use an SSL web server with a RESTful API.
