Initial Questions:

Project/Feature Name: TLS Prober
Tracking  ID:
Flaws in SSL/TLS deployment cause serious security problems for all users of Firefox everywhere (OS, Desktop, Mobile) and could affect the quality of our services that depend on secure connections.

TLS Prober is a TLS/SSL "crawler" that monitors the state of TLS online and can be used for detecting various problems or trends in deployment of TLS/SSL.  Once set up and running, this system can be extended to look for dangerous trends and help identify the reach of TLS-related flaws.  
Additional Information:

TLS Prober was created by Opera and is being decommissioned over the next few months.  This data is valuable and it would be a shame if it were no longer available to anyone.

Hi Sid. Does this bug need to be secret?

For the prober, it looks like it's meant to be run from a central server, and crawl the web. If so, what privacy issues might we forsee?

I don't think this needs to be secret, and I doubt if there are privacy issues here (I just filled out the kickoff form).  We're just planning on collecting information about TLS handshakes and server certs in the wild.
