Wired: Digital Security for Free

In a surprise move following Wednesday’s release of the
patent on the main security algorithm used in digital security
products, Baltimore Technologies will offer one of its key
developer toolkit products for free from its website.

“In the past, the toolkit elements would have cost developers
$10,000 to $20,000.”

“Dublin-based Baltimore, the third-largest company marketing
security products following its January merger with U.S.-based
CyberTrust, hopes the free availability of the toolkit will
encourage developers to incorporate public key cryptography into
many more applications.”

“Baltimore believes this will help seed the security products
market, already expected to be worth £287 million by 2003,
according to analyst Datamonitor.”
