Paul Schreiber blogs about the tech behind the websites of presidential candidates. "So, you want to run a country. Can you hire someone who can run a website? ...Here's how the (declared) candidates' sites fare." There's a table comparing 4 candidates' sites based on HTTPS, URL permutations, IPv6, SSL rating, and other related qualities. Schreiber mentions that he will "update this as more candidates declare or sites change."

From the blog comments was using IIS (and no https) until Sunday morning, when they switched over.

    Well, I have all-metal doors and all the windows also have metal bars. That should slow down the fuckers

    I was going to agree with you, but frame is typically the weakest spot. Here's a solid wooden door set in a metal frame [], and it does take a significant amount of work to get through. Proper frame and door reinforcements can make forced entry effectively impervious to humans lacking power tools []...

    ... but then there's nothing stopping someone from using a buzzsaw to simply cut a new doorway in a wall, or driving a tank into your house.

    Nonetheless, taking simple and inexpensive steps to reinforce entryways can help keep the home's owner from being low-hanging fruit for criminals.
