TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Because our product used to be sold for an "in-house" model, where IT and/or data-security people did all the setup and deployed mostly within an organization.
Now it's becoming more of a service-provider model, where the owner of the equipment provides initial configuration and access in negotiation that might take minutes or days, from opposite sides of the world.
The customer of the provider doesn't need or want to know about the stuff that the provider (holder of the physical equipment) has to do. They only want to know the few steps they must take to get to what they need - a cryptographic "device" against which to run their crypto-using application(s).
The roles are becoming much more separate than in the past.

Subject: Re: Separate Guides?
I seem to be missing something; what's the point of creating two separate guides?
[there's an "on the same page" type joke to be made here; someone else can do it]
