If you want security solutions to be widely deployed, nothing 
beats having a revenue model for someone. With a revenue model, 
you have a champion who will work hard to sell the solution to 
the world. Without a revenue model, you just have a bunch of 
geeks with a good idea. We have TLS with CAs because there is a 
revenue model, not because it is the best solution.
