Re: RE: Charles 9 Both correct
Or if he had baked in security:
1, he would have got it wrong - even experts get it wrong so the chance of a regular programmer inventing ssl and implementing it correctly is zero. So we would have had a built-in faulty standard.
2, It would have been too difficult for anyone else to use/implement so we would have no browsers/servers outside CERN.
3, Without an infrastructure of certifcate providers the only response would be to use something like existing "x." protocol family security. Which would have involved governments. So anyone copuld have had a website if the postoffice approved your licence request.
4, It would have hit export issues. No web browser/server software could have been copied from the USA. There would have to have been government level negotiations for a "munition" to be transferred from CERN to other institutions.
