"Intel on Monday announced the release of the open-source specification and reference implementation of its CDSA (Common Data Security Architecture) version 2, release 3.0 through the company Web site."

"The security specification will simplify the assignment of security technology to networks and e-businesses that may not possess the security expertise to deploy defenses without assistance, according to Terry Smith, CDSA Marketing manager for Intel...."

"Adopted last December by open standards organization The Open Group, which led the standardization of many Unix technologies as governed by 14 computer industry leaders including IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Fujitsu, and Sun, the CDSA is designed to embrace existing security technology such as the PKCS (Public Key Cryptographic Standard) and other well-known systems across a wide variety of platforms, according to Smith."
