Subject: Review of the Burton Group PKI Position

Dear All

One of the deliverables of my ROI project for thr Education SC is to 
review the Technical Position on PKI developed by Burton Group.  On first 
indications, it appeared that this Position would have information about 
costings and ROI (based on an outline we found in the public domain).  A 
PKI TC members (sorry I forget who!) was kind enough to course a full and 
bona fide copy of the Burton document, and I have now reviewed it in full. 

Please see my report attached.  It turns out that the Burton document does 
not fact have much to say about ROI.  It has other uses nevertheless as 

I propose that we keep the Burton review separate from the eventual ROI 
white paper (because the review is gently critical of Burton).  We should 
probably reach out to Burton and forge an alliance of sorts. 

Comments welcome on the attached, but you might prefer to save your 
reviewers' energies for the ROI white paper in the next few days.
