In my very first posting I decided to take a stab at what I was seeking to accomplish, at least at that moment. In part I wrote,

I read and hear and think about this stuff all day, and it's clear to me that some demystification is in order. I see things in writing that simply are not true. I look at sites (including major sites) that still seem to misunderstand why we use this technology and how to follow best practices. I hear statements spoken aloud by my friends and neighbors that indicate the negative effect these bits of misinformation are having on the average online user. My hope is that this blog can play its small part in keeping the discussion accurate and assisting the progress of online protection, which ultimately is good for the entire ecosystem --...

If you're attending the InfoSec show in Orlando, Florida this week, make sure you swing by the VeriSign booth for an demonstration of Extended Validation SSL Certificates. A couple of our people are over there demoing EV, and they know the product very well, so it's a good opportunity to see the certificates in action and get your questions answered.

If you have Internet Explorer 7, you probably already noticed The SSL Blog has Extended Validation SSL on it. If not, just add an s to the http in the address of the page you're looking at now (or click this link to The SSL Blog if you're lazy), and check it out.

I can't prove it, but I think this makes the VeriSign blogs (which includes The SSL Blog among others) the first ever blogs in the world to be protected with Extended Validation SSL Certificates. Another milestone shattered. ;)
