Privacy, Security, Encryption The on-again, off-again status of OpenSSL Certificate 642's validation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology seems to be coming to a conclusion as abruptly as it began.

Outrage

This is an OUTRAGE IMHO.

I don't see how they can justify pulling the plug like that on OpenSSL. I'm willing to bet that NIST received a HEFTY sum of money from the "anonymous vendors".

And this has always been the case. Think OS/2 to some degree.....
