I agree with the others who said that you should just invoke the cert from the start. I don't see the page-loading delay I used to see years ago, so I normally get to the login page with an https link, and stay in the cert throughout the process, whatever it is.

Specifically, if the login form is embedded in all the non ssl pages (user can login from any of the non-ssl pages) and the form action points to a page on the ssl side for login validation, is this considered secure? I'm thinking not, but then how do you offer a secure login without making the entire site ssl/https?
