ATE-Munich, 2. April

After Munich’s ATE in 2009 another one is scheduled. This time it is a joint offer from the CAcert community and Munich’s open source meetings. It is also supported by secure-u e.V.
We will host the ATE on afternoon of 2nd April. More details on the wiki.

There are a couple of options to indicate that you are attending:

– Email I will attend ATE-Munich
– Acknowledge the XING event
– Edit the wiki directly

As IanG said: “The ATE or Assurer Training Event is exceptionally recommended for all Assurers, and include parts which contribute directly to our audit. Come and find out how you can also contribute.”


~ 30 people have been registered already. Looking forward to seeing you at the ATE.

And the Oscar goes to …

… CAcert4München.

Hmmm, not really, to be honest 😉

It is true that it has been awarded. But it didn’t won the Oscar, not even the „Goldene Kamera“.
CAcert4München was amongst the awarded proposals for the Munich Open Government Day (MOGDy) .

And the award can be viewed at the bottom of this page.

What is the proposal about ?

Well, in a nutshell it suggests that the Munich Government uses CAcert for client and server certificates needed. And they might include CAcert’s root certificates into their own Linux distribution called LiMux.

Note that one can vote for the proposal still. The more people support the proposal the more important it looks to the people running the MOGDy campaign.

How to support ?

Register: Go to the registration page , upper righ hand corner ? Registrieren.

Then on the right hand side fill in:

Benutzername: user name, your choice
E-Mail: your email address
Passwort: choose your own password
Passwort (bestätigen): enter your password a second time

Vote: Go to the proposal page and on the upper left hand side either click on
dafür (aye) or
dagegen (naye)

Of course MOGDy is targeted (but not restricted) to people living in Munich.
So please support the proposal, since it is an advantage for Munich (save costs, create yet more attractiveness in the open source community) and for CAcert (probably one „big shot“ for the inclusion status).
