alphadogg writes with an excerpt from an interview with the designer of SSH-1: "Tatu Ylönen has garnered fame in technology circles as the inventor of Secure Shell (SSH), the widely used protocol to protect data communications. The CEO of SSH Communications Security — whose crypto-based technology invented in 1995 continues to be used in hundreds of millions of computers, routers and servers — recently spoke with Network World on a variety of security topics, including the disappearance of consumer privacy and the plight of SSL. (At the Black Hat Conference this week, his company is also announcing CryptoAuditor.)"

    - But what if anything could replace the SSL certificate infrastructure?
    - For consumers in the short term, no. But SSH is an option, especially for automation. It would require an extension to SSH. I actively proposed it to replace SSL 15 years ago but I was basically railroaded at the IETF by Microsoft and Sun!

    It makes me happy to think about a completely secure computer system with NO USERS since that is the only way that you could possibly make a system secure

    Then you should be pleased to know that RIM has been making great strides on their implementation of this idea. It might even be finished within the next year.

    As someone who as seen Firefly, it isn't even enough to live with a man 40 years. Share his house, his meals. Speak on every subject.

    You have to tie him up, and hold him over the volcano's edge. And on that day, you will finally meet the man.

    Kim Kardashian (thanks to her huge twitter following) probably has more "votes" than all of Slahdot put together.

    And she gets laid more often!
