It is not a common feature in "home" routers (because few home users need VLANs, let alone know how to set them up), but my Small Business router from Cisco does have the ability to set up separate VLANs and restrict them from communicating with each other. (Specifically, it allows setting a specific VLAN to ...

You can use some wget's ...

It's convenience, mostly. A pure PGP-like web-of-trust only works if there is a path of trust between the verifying client and the signed certificate. With PKI, it starts with the list of trusted root CAs that all operating systems (and often web browsers) have built in, and that list can be used to verify 99% of all server certificates encountered. With ...
