Requests I make appear to be redirected back to plain http URLs and the certs seem questionable:

% curl -O 'https://api.stackoverflow.com/1.0/questions/?key=oxXcnoD51kKE crj7TadaA&tagged=marklogic&body=true&jsonp=stackunderflow._jsonp0&pagesize=3'

curl: (51) SSL peer certificate or SSH remote key was not OK

API 2.0 supports (and requires) SSL. I don't think SSL is supported in API 1.0.

    Just to confirm, v2.0 does support HTTPS access and it is required for the authentication methods and recommended for everything else. v1.0 and v1.1 do not support HTTPS access. Feb 8, 2012 at 19:01

    Sure would be nice if the 1.0 or 1.1 docs said as much.
