To do it right (e.g. safe, secure, and reliable for the sake of your customers), you either need a team of a few very (very) experienced developers including at least one security expert, or you should just go with an established, trusted solution like Verisign (despite their merger with Network Solutions.. *sigh*). I, personally, would never trust myself to develop a good solution on my own (at least not until I've got my degree ;)), and definitely go with an established, trusted product.
