SSL governance and implementation across the Internet

Philippe Courtot, founder of the Trustworthy Internet Movement (TIM), and chairman and CEO of Qualys, talks about how the TIM has chosen SSL governance and implementation across the Internet as its first project.

The nonprofit, vendor-neutral organization has formed a taskforce comprised of world renowned security experts to review SSL governance known issues and develop new proposals aimed at making SSL pervasive on the Internet.

The TIM SSL Internet Taskforce will engage experts to objectively review all proposals to fix both SSL and Certificate Authority (CA) ecosystems. Based on this independent review, the taskforce will identify new recommendations aimed at steering the evolution of these ecosystems towards improved security.

TIM is a nonprofit, vendor-neutral organization that leverages the resources of the technology industry, information security professionals, and the venture capital community to resolve the problems of Internet security, privacy and reliability.
