"Intel last week gave applications and systems vendors more security. Literally."

"The company said it will offer the code for its Common Data Security Architecture (CDSA) software as open source code at no charge. In the spirit of open source software, such as Linux, Intel is letting developers modify CDSA."

"Using CDSA software, which was developed in Intel Architecture Labs, companies can build security services into systems more quickly and inexpensively, the company said. For IT managers, that promises the more rapid release of products with encryption and authentication features built into them. Furthermore, in-house developers can use CDSA to add security services into their in-house applications, according to Intel."

"CDSA is an API that provides access to the four major categories of security services: encryption; management of certificates; trust policies, which identify who has access to which databases; and secure data storage, said Terry Smith, CDSA marketing manager."
