NAI belatedly joins OpenPGP Alliance
Author: JT Smith
Network Associates is now part of the OpenPGP Alliance. Yesterday, The Register reported that NAI had chosen not to participate in the effort to promote interoperability between encryption packages. Today, The Register received an e-mail message from PGP creator Phil Zimmermann saying "Your article seems to have alerted NAI that they should get moving..." to join the Alliance. After yesterday's article, NAI suddenly cut through its own bureacratic "clearance" process and joined the new organization.
