Having written cynically about what MS may be trying to achieve with DRM, how
about looking at the sort of things that could be done with OpenOffice/OASIS
and things like straight GnuPG or even an adaption of Aegypten ?
We could have:
- Encrypted documents that only certain people can read.
- Documents signed against changes.
- Documents you can prove you wrote (and didn't write).
- Signed edits ?
- Pass keys around inside OOo docs ?
Strikes me that OOo could also provide a nice interface for GnuPG which would
be platform independant. Windows user types in text of email into OOo,
selects "encrypt and sign", or just "sign", and cut & pastes ciphertext into
Eudora, etc (and visa versa) ? Not elegant, but functional.
You could integrate key-management stuff like grabbing keys from the key
