CAcert Assurer (Assurer Certificate #965). You are welcome to contact me for assurances, I still have to increase my experience points.
Living in Aachen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany (close to Belgium and the Netherlands).
Formerly working as a theoretical physicist (see my homepage for details), entered software engineering in 2013.
I discovered CAcert when looking for an alternative to the free Thawte certificate service which was stopped in 2009. Although I regret that the CAcert root certificate is not generally included in browsers, e-mail clients and operating systems, I decided to start relying on CAcert certificates for my private e-mail addresses.
So now I, after having my own identity assured with CAcert, I am trying to help CAcert on its way to full recognition as a trusted CA. I agree to those stating that certificates issued by CAcert are at least as trustable as many commercial certificates. But this does not help me when many of my e-mail recipients do not even know CAcert. How can I convince people of using digital certificates anyway if my own certificates are not recognized in their e-mail clients and browsers? So there is much work ahead of us ...
