Default Secure Forms?

This is totally non-xcart related.

I have a client that needs a couple of secure forms. I have the forms coded, but don't have a clue how to secure them. He's on shared hosting and doesn't have his own IP address, so I think an SSL certificate is not an option. I was thinking that I may have to use a 3rd party host or service for the forms. Anyone know of a solution?

I beleive the only solution is to have a SSL connection.
So either they need to get their own SSL or farm out the work like you mentioned.

Yeah, SSL is the only way. Does the ISP offer a shared SSL cert?

Also to consider is securely collecting the form data because we all know how secure email is . There are a few secure form-to-email options out there. I use a modified version of Matt Wright's FormMail that uses PGP called pgp5formmail. Not exactly a piece of cake to set up (and you need PGP on your server as well as local computer) but if I can do it, anyone can.
