Buying and selling root certificates

Steve asked:

Put another way, what's your threat model?


That is THE question you ask first for any security question,
where "security" is everything from door locks at home, parking
spaces at dinner # of guards with M-16's at the data center.

And you should ask it 3-4 times, and see what variety of answers
you get.....

Then ask again at the next review. (Things Change -- just recall
who our biggest ally was in defeating Hitler...and against Iran...)

I see lots of people putting {virtual} vault doors on straw houses.
