A couple days ago I wrote about the power of secure Internet connections to enable behavior that otherwise on many occasions wouldn't be possible for various of us due to one circumstance or another. Today I am one of those people.

This NetworkWorld article shows the extent companies will go to in order to protect themselves from phishing. In this case, we're talking about signing e-mails with digital certificates. Even though it's an added expense that comes with additional IT burden, and even though it only works for a segment of the company's customers, this German bank is still making the investment because it understands the importance of keeping its customers online rather than going in to visit branch offices.

This problem is the one that High Assurance SSL Certificates are designed to fix. The companies that know the bottom-line value of customers using the Web site are going to any lengths they can to keep them coming in that way. Once they're able to put High Assurance...

This month's issue of Internet Retailer magazine contains a great article all about online security marks, how Web sites are using them to increase transaction rates, and how customers respond positively to them. And my quotes are all over it.

We're on the verge of the most significant development in SSL since the origin of the technology ten years ago. I'm not speaking in hyperbole, either. 2006 will see the widespread adoption of a brand new kind of SSL Certificate. And those among us who download and install the latest browsers will learn to look at SSL-protected Web pages in a whole new way.

I read a thought-provoking article today about remote access for Asian information workers as a possible contributor in combatting a potential H5N1 outbreak. It's an interesting idea. It's well demonstrated that businesses and schools are major hubs of virus transmission. By making it possible to workers to get their jobs done and not have a presence in the office, these nexus points for transmission are diminished.

In the US we have a phenomenon called presenteeism, which is where you go to work even though you know you shouldn't because you don't want to waste your PTO days sleeping at home. "My co-workers be damned! I'm looking out for numero uno," you say. If you have the ability to work remotely, you can still look out for numero uno but don't have to expose your compatriots to the creeping crud in the process.

All right, maybe it's a bit grandiose, but ultimately that's the impetus behind the creation of Tim Callan's SSL Blog. I'm a bit of a utility infielder here at VeriSign's SSL business, and as such I spend my days in a balance between product direction, outbound customer communication, and representing the company's SSL division to partners, press, industry people, and the public at large. This job puts me in the unique position to learn exactly what's going on with this technology, see how it's used by real companies in the real world, and hear the impressions -- both accurate and inaccurate -- held by a broad set of users, online businesses, and vendors who participate in one way or another.
