    The Trustworthy Internet Movement has launched SSL Pulse, a "real time" dashboard as part of an initiative to improve the quality of SSL implementations in use on the web. The Trustworthy Internet Movement (TIM) is a non-profit launched by the chairman and CEO of Qualys, Philippe Courtot, in February at the RSA conference. Its next step, it has decided, is to create a TIM SSL Taskforce to look at SSL governance and implementation across the internet.
    The taskforce includes Michael Barrett, CISO at Paypal; Taher Elgamal, CIO at IdentityMind and one of the creators of the SSL protocol; Ryan Hurst, CTO at GMO GlobalSign Inc; Adam Landley, Staff Engineer at Google working on SSL/TLS in Chrome and on the companies services; Moxie Marlinspike, Whisper Systems founder (recently acquired by Twitter) and creator of Convergence; and, Ivan Ristić, Qualys' Director of Engineering and creator of SSL Labs. The team will be providing objective reviews of proposals to fix the issues that surround SSL and Certificate Authority ecosystems and look to identify recommendable solutions to those problems.
