As everyone can read:
- https://www.instantssl.com/ssl-certificate-products/https.html
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=346292#c7
- [Put there your reference to a site about security]

Some users that care about security know what is authentication, some of them
know what are "man in the middle" attacks,  encryption, etc. and use HTTPS
consequently. Other users don't know all that but they know enough to use HTTPS
regularly, as they have been advised by security-conscious websites. When users
see a KDE page like
that doesn't have any icon indicating a secure connection, its real author,
etc.; and when they see that
does not even work; that all causes a bad impression about KDE. KDE is a lot
better than that!
