I agree with Peter
crypto algos on routers have stronger keys usually located in much harder to access area than
anything I've seen available on the software side
Then again if your a DoD shop and you need C2 security RSA's process of flipping algos and
keysize every n random minutes beats em all..

I'm gonna say that's quite a bit of myth here. If SSL is important, get a
cheap SSL enabled router. Doing software SSL is waste of CPU power and
impacts the server's stability.  Anyone that has a lot of HTTPS traffic
shouldn't be using software SSL in my bias opinion.  If you are so desparate
that you need software SSL, as remy says, there's APR.  no need to stick
apache httpd infront.

my bias 2 bits on this topic
