Life in the trenches: an OpenSSH developer speaks

,----[ Quote ]

| years had passed.
| "My parents got me my first computer when I was about eight," he says. "Back
| in those days, owning a computer was very conducive to learning how to
| program because they didn't do much unless you programmed them to do
| something or bought some software which wasn't particularly widely available

| Weathersby says the OSSI has reason to believe the complaints came from
| proprietary vendors hoping to initiate a FUD campaign that would create doubt

| "After a long and arduous journey that included a suspended validation last
| year .. OpenSSL has regained its FIPS 140-2 validation"
| "We called it the FUD campaign," he says. "There were all kinds of
| complaints sent to the CMVP including one about 'Commie code.' .. Silly or
| no, each complaint that's filed really slows down the process."
| "the ones they did see often contained redacted, or blacked-out, data about
| who had filed the complaint .. in some cases, proprietary software vendors
| were lodging the complaints.
