I'm a member of the Gridcoin community, and we're currently looking into providing better security for our crunchers.
It looks like this project isn't currently using an SSL certificate for the login page. Are there any plans to remedy this in the near future? A free SSL cert from Let's Encrypt wouldn't bring any additional monetary cost to the project.
There's a chance that not having an SSL cert may lead to this project being removed from the project whitelist, which means it will no longer be crunched by the Gridcoin team.
The discussion regarding the whitelist can be found here: https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/29841-discussion-boinc-whitelist-monitoring/?p=221133
