There should be some indication that payment pages in the store are
secure, perhaps with a padlock in the status bar.

Mockup and the icon attached. The position should be fixed, bottom right, on top of any content.

It doesn't display in rhythmbox when you enter your card information.

There should probably be a way to view the ssl certificate as well. Just like you can in a web browser.

e.g. click on the secure icon.

@ Matt Griffin

Are you asking about the padlock icon? I think it is sufficient, but it should appear in the Rhythmbox status bar and, indeed, display the ssl certificate in the new gtk window when clicked.

That is exactly what I mean.

Personally, a padlock icon in rhythmbox wouldn't suffice for me, as that could easily be "faked" ... and, well, we could potentially have a MITM with a cheap SSL certificate (CACert maybe, if that's included).

I'd personally like to see an external page load up in my browser, where I can confirm the details and "register" my card or paypal account (though, whether you're storing the CCs is a different matter! - and a bigger security risk!)

It's a bit of a tough one really... if not storing, maybe an external site that allows you to buy "vouchers" that get linked to your U1 account? And for paypal - a "payment agreement" ?
