Red Hat takes on the recession

| The open source revolution may have yet to happen, but with company budgets 
| on the line, change is in the air.

| For me as the operator and head of the StartCom Certification Authority, 
| every computer application making use of SSL and cryptography is of

| announce the upcoming default support of the StartCom Authority by Microsoft. 
| Starting approximately the 22nd of September, Microsoft intends to distribute 
| a non-security update package to the Windows operating systems which includes 
| the trusted StartCom root certificate and the automatic root certificate 
| update service will update the cryptographic certificates root store on those 
| systems whenever a StartCom issued certificate is encountered.         
| This not only means that Internet Explorer will finally support web sites

| SSL security and the Internet at large are potentially reaching further than 
| that:   
|     StartCom is the only public certification authority providing digital 
|     certificates for free!

| business of implied security. There was certainly some naivety and a lot of
| innocence with our proclaimed goal - until our servers were overran by almost
| two million page views during the initial days after our announcement which
| hit the Internet news sites. We went likeâ.WOW!
