All Qualys-owned websites should score perfectly in the SSL Labs SSL Server Test to have an ideal case as a reference

To set the example for others, I feel that both and should be improved so that they represent the ideal websites when scored by the SSL Server Test (Powered by Qualys SSL Labs) (that is: get A+; get 100% for all of Certificate, Protocol Support, Key Exchange, and Cipher Strength; maximize the amount of green font and eliminate any orange and red font; and whatever else is ideal).


There is currently no ideal case to compare against, and so it is hard for website owners to figure out what their next step in improving cybersecurity should be. If we had the ideal case, then the whole Internet would become more secure much faster because it would be clearer from the test how unideal everybody's website is.
