Submission + - Internet Explorer supports free certificates (h-online.com) 1

Heise writes: "With its last update, Microsoft has added StartCom to the pre-installed root certificates in its operating system. As a result, Microsoft products (such as Internet Explorer) now accept certificates issued by StartCom without prompting the user or requiring any special configurations for the certificates. Third-party programs that use the operating system's certificate memory will also accept the certificates without asking further questions."

  • The viability of Open CA Authorities (http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/07/18/1721234) just took a big step in the right direction. It's a small victory ($0 domain-validated certificate compared to a $15 GoDaddy domain-validated certificate) but it could change the SSL industry.
