Re: [ga] Registration process suggestion - Using "CA Certs" for registration and Voting...
Roeland and all,
I agree fully. But it seems that some here do not understand or have
adequate knowledge of CA Digital Certs even though that information
is VERY available for review. As a member of the TLS working group
for several years now, I am VERY familiar. If anyone needs URL's
for some of this information I can certainly provide them. But whether
or not some on this list do understand CA Digital Certs or not is not
a restriction in and of itself here that I can see. Many well known
"Trusted CA's" are available to provide this. Ben Laurie is a good
person to ask for additional information as well.
