Having fought with SSL certificate configuration in various
applications, I'm eagerly awaiting the completion of the crypto
consolidation project . However, the focus currently appears to be
on consolidating the low-level cryptographic operations in NSS. IMO,
that only solves half the problem, and an equal amount of emphasis needs
to be placed on the user interface consolidation.
A common user interface package hasn't been chosen yet. I would like to
suggest Mozilla PSM as a starting point since it is mature and gets a
lot of attention from security and usability experts. I imagine PSM
does pretty much everything needed for X.509 certificates.
Functionality currently in seahorse for the GNOME keyring, PGP keys and
SSH keys may need to be added. Thoughts?
