An example of a CA is Verisign ( Verisign provides a free trial Secure Server ID that you can use to test the SSL implementation. If you decide to use the trial ID permanently, you must register it and pay for it.

(incidentally, Macromedia is also a CA, but we do not provide services. we need to be one for the types of distros we use).

Dear Techwr-l Members:

I checked the archives, but didn't come up with anything. May have used the
wrong search criteria. Can anyone point me to a Web site - perhaps more
than one - that provides some sort of list of Certificate Authority
Services? A Google search of Certificate Authority Services resulted in
thousands of hits - a little hard to wade through to find what I need.
Identified only one site (by Netscape) that contained a list and it only
listed 5 or 6 CA Service companies.

For what it's worth, I need this information for a manual for a new product
that requires the customer to purchase and install an X.509 Version 3
Digital Certificate. They can use any CA Service Company they choose, but I
would like to tell there where/how to look for one. Appreciate any
