Everyone,
I am looking into setting up a webserver to hold some very sensitive 
information.  I am trying to figure out which is more secure, forcing 
any web connections to be done using an ssh tunnel or forcing ssl.
I have not been able to figure out if one is definitively much more 
secure than another or if they are close to the same.  I would have 
initially thought the ssh tunnel was more secure but knowing that ssl 
can use AES-256, I am now wondering if that isn't adding a complexity 
for little extra security.

Thanks in advance
