Greetings from Infosec!
As I'm writing it's 12:30 pm Greenwich Mean Time on day two of Infosecurity Europe (AKA Infosec), which means we're exactly halfway through the show. I've been booked solid between three presentations a day and meeting members of press, customers, and persons generally interested in the new High Assurance SSL standard. The level of interest here has been very high. Most of the people I talk to already understand that security fears are stifling online business and that phishing continues to be an unsolved problem. Likewise, they get how the new browser behaviors around High Assurance will dramatically improve the situation.
For your background, Infosec is Europe's largest IT security show and typically has about 15,000 attendees, most of them IT professionals with some level of security responsibility. It's extremely gratifying to see the level of interest in this new development.
