A blistering indictment of Mozilla’s security process

Filed under: — adam @ 8:43 am

“There is no doubt that Mozilla has walked into an agenda capture process. It specifically excluded one CA,, for what appears to be competitive reasons. Microsoft enters these things frequently for the purposes of a) knowing what people are up to, and b) controlling them. (Nothing wrong with that, unless you aren’t Microsoft.) At least one of the participants in the process is in the throes of selling a product to others, one that just happens to leave itself in control. The membership itself is secret, as are the minutes, etc etc.”
