It's related to IBM's work on machine/code interface security,
encryption and authentication capabilities. Cryptographers may
want to examine how these work in Microkernal. If IBM will
allow access to the features.
And it's related to parallel alarms sounded on cypherpunks
about the impossibility of any durable security which does not
anticipate ever-changing attacks devised by authors of
competing products and services.
Finally, not your hat size, to be sure, it's related to the
vanity of computer security consultants who dismiss unknown
competition at the peril of their credibility.
