Privacy, Security, Encryption Kaspersky is working on its own secure operating system for highly specialised tasks. "We're developing a secure operating system for protecting key information systems (industrial control systems) used in industry/infrastructure. Quite a few rumors about this project have appeared already on the Internet, so I guess it's time to lift the curtain (a little) on our secret project and let you know (a bit) about what's really going on."

- looks like "security through obscurity" to me, to some degree. They won't share the code, and they'll have limited number of eyeballs looking at their code [mostly internal contractors]. Good luck with that, Kaspersky


Can we stop with the persistence of the many eyes principle, please.

More people looking at the code doesn't help you if they don't know what they are looking for.
