"Intel Corporation announced today at the RSA Europe security conference it will deliver its Common Data Security Architecture (CDSA) software to the industry at no cost. This will allow companies around the world to develop security-enabled software products for e-Business faster and in a more cost-effective manner."

"Intel is making the CDSA software available as "open source" code, which can be modified and used by developers with virtually any operating system to add security features to e-Business and other software applications. This open source approach also will allow CDSA software to be used as the security infrastructure for the Linux operating system."

"One of the most important issues facing the computer industry is security on the Internet," said Craig Kinnie, Vice President and Director of the Intel Architecture Labs. "By providing CDSA software as open source code, Intel is helping fuel the growth of the Internet, offering the industry the services needed to build secure e-Business applications."
