[This has interesting consequences... but since I cant seem to access
any of the specs on CDSA without membership or paying for hardcopy
I wouldn't go calling it a open standard. Will they never learn?
Must be a $9.95/month hidden in here somewhere.]

NEW YORK, April 10 (Reuters) - Computer chip maker Intel Corp.
(NasdaqNM:INTC - news) on Monday will announce plans to give away
advanced security software on the World Wide Web, according to a report
in the Wall Street Journal's online edition.

The Intel software uses a set of industry-standard security functions
known as the Common Data Security Architecture, the Journal said. The
software includes encryption features and tools to manage digital
certificates, which guarantee the identity of Internet users.

The Journal said Intel will begin offering the security software, as
well as the programme code for the package, for download by May 15.
