Given that anyone with $200,000 can purchase a root certificate and become
a CA it's hardly a trustworthy system in the first place. I'm more likely
to trust them if their certificate is correctly identified and generated

There is NO PROOF that the factoring of the products of large primes is a
fundamentally 'hard' mathematical problem. It's likely a fast algorithm
exists and is already in the hands of several governments.

We are all exposed on the internet ;-)
