Open Market, Inc. Announcing security products
Here is what they are going to do..
1) Hosting a web site where a user with any browser can find out if
their browser is secure. List security problems associated with
that browser. "a self diagnostic center"
Using their knowledge base about browsers to create this feature.
2) Creating ref. implementations for the Open Market server; methods
of verifying what browser you are connecting with and lookup
security bugs and or proceed with transaction. Make CGI scripts
available for operators of other servers. Basically letting other
sites do what they are doing it step 1.
3) Offer a free upgrade problem for people who have a server that has
had a security breach. They can download a known secure server.
This upgrade is for any commercial server browser that has a known
breach. E.g., update a netsite server but not a CERN 3.0 server even
if the CERN operator has hacked it to make it secure.
