I have just read Jane K. Winn's paper, "The Emperor's New Clothes:  The
Shocking Truth About Digital Signatures and Internet Commerce".

As far as I can remember, it was mentioned on the list.

I wonder if you could make any comments whether digital signatures are
really NOT used worldwide as the paper states! Unfortunately I could not
find any research or survey. Any reference would be greatly appreciated.
