Subject: PKI TC Follow-up Survey Is Live!

In case you weren't on the list of invited participants
(because you didn't answer our earlier survey or didn't
supply an email address when you did), here's a copy of
the email invitation that went out yesterday.

I received 24 responses in the first 24 hours. The response
rate has dropped off a bit, but I think we'll almost
certainly get 75 or more responses (especially since I
plan to send a personalized reminder email).

Please don't forget to respond to this survey yourself.

Subject: OASIS PKI TC Survey Results and Follow-up (ACTION REQUESTED)

Thanks to your enthusiastic participation, our survey on
Obstacles to PKI Deployment and Usage was a huge success.
We received 216 responses from more than 30 countries,
which provided valuable insights that will be critical to
our future work. For details, see our survey analysis at


In September, the OASIS PKI TC will decide what actions to
take to address the obstacles identified in this survey.

But first we need to clarify a few things. We have prepared
a brief follow-up survey that:

1) Breaks down some of the broad obstacles in the June 2003
    survey into smaller categories so we can actually address
    them. For instance, we have broken down "Costs Too High" into
    "Cost of Software Acquisition", "Cost of Training", etc.

2) Adds several obstacles that were cited by several survey
    respondents as major "Other" obstacles. We read your
    comments very carefully and we want to make sure that the
    obstacles you identified are considered on an equal footing
    with the obstacles we initially identified.

3) Uses a point-based rating system to rank obstacles. This
    will help us allocate our resources to the most critical

4) Allows you to suggest ways to overcome the obstacles.

We know that you are very busy, but we hope that you will
take the time to complete this follow-up survey. Because
many people are on vacation in August, we will accept
responses for three weeks (from August 11 through September 1).
We encourage you to respond to this survey ASAP. The URL is:


Your response is *very* important. We are only publicizing
this survey to people who responded to our earlier survey
and provided their email address (like you). You came through
for us last time with great responses. Please do so again.
If you do, we promise to send you the results of this survey
and a report detailing what actions the OASIS PKI TC plans to
take to address these obstacles.



P.S. If you would like to join the OASIS PKI TC and help us
address these obstacles or you have other comments, please
contact our chairs at pki-tc-chair@lists.oasis-open.org.


You are receiving this email because you (or someone posing

in error or you want to be removed from our mailing list,
