Additional support for Audit

In October 2007, NLnet provided additional financial means to the CACert organization to enable them to complete its transition into a more professional notary organization. The contribution will be used to cover expenses for a serious independent security audit, which will establish the trustworthiness of its infrastructure.

A completed audit enables CAcert to petition Mozilla for addition to their browsers and other software. This, if approved, will result in a dramatic increase in the utility of the certificates to all users in the community and the public at large.

As the approach of CAcert's audit work-through has been fundamentally open and honest, the result is also likely to challenge the entire CA industry to lift its game. Although difficult to predict, these changes could change the way CAs and certificates work, and thus the way security is delivered by Internet software to users.
