When you sign up to check out the RSA keynote speeches, including VeriSign CEO Stratton Sclavos's presentation on security in the Any Era, make sure you check out the selection from Friday called "Phish or No Phish." Host Hugh Thompson shows us an interesting exercise where the security professionals in the room are trying to choose between phishing messages and real messages. Over a quarter of them pick the wrong message, which Hugh points out as very significant.

There's also some insightful discussion of marketing security online and the value of so doing. Both these points are relevent from the perspective of Extended Validation SSL and the VeriSign Secured Seal. If that's not enough reason to watch this 30ish minute video, however, I'll just tell you that Hugh's opening anecdote about hacking the airplane's entertainment system at 30,000 feet is hilarious.
