Suggestion: *

Description: SSL support for whois.arin.net (the web site) to fix 
security warnings when initiating Whois searches from ARIN.NET.

It seems out-of-character with the importance of this site on the 
internet that whois.arin.net is http:// instead of https://, thus 
resulting in a security warning if somebody initiates a whois from the 
SEARCH Whois box on the main ARIN home page.

Value to Community: TRUST of users who use the ARIN.NET website to find 
out essential information about the responsible parties for 
ARIN-distributed resources.
