The new elected CAcert Inc board want to share their mission statement for the current fiscal year.
We want to help CAcert to become the world’s most trusted service provider able to help people around the world
- to secure their privacy
- to secure their identity
in the area of digital electronic communications. We all want to lead an operating Certificate Authority providing highly secure certificates for free to the public in which everybody can trust. The next central milestone for the development of our CA is to pass an audit with flying colors.
We will subordinate all of our activities to reach this goal within the next years.
The first serious challenge to take will be the resign of our root certificate within the next 3 months (hopefully on the eve of FOSDEM 2016).
We want to continue with the tasks to prepare the New Root Escrow within the next year.
To secure the existence of CAcert for a long time we want to prepare the move to a hosting country in Europe within the next year.
Today we ask you to have confidence in our plans and personal integrity and hope that all of you will support us in fulfilling these tasks.
Please allow to remember to McDonald’s main maxim:
„All of us is more than one of us“
The new board is composed of
Reinhard Mutz, President CAcert Inc.
Jürgen Bruckner, Vice President CAcert Inc.
Marcus Mängel, Secretary
Stefan Thode, Treasurer
Felix Dörre, Board member
Peter Yuill, Board member

Thanks for helping me to secure my privacy 😉
For me it looks like there is still very much to do. Anyway – thank for your work, plans and dedication.
