I love to program, tinker with things and generally a curious person. My career started with developing DOS TSRs in x86 Assembler. My daily work includes programming in Delphi (Windows), Ruby on Rails (Linux) and Java (Android).

My company Hagel Technologies makes network bandwidth monitor DU Meter and other software. I sometimes write in my blog.

I think you're mixing together different technologies here, e.g. anchoring the PKI trust chains into DNS instead of CAs requires DNSSEC, obviously, but it is not the stated reason DNSSEC was created, e.g. preventing DNS spoofing is beneficial as-is, even with today's PKI. And I disagree with "lack of flagrant issues with the exisitng PKI", but it's off-topic here.

comment What are formal parameters for fingerprint scanner selection?
Thank you for your answer... It did help, although I was looking for a more practical one. E.g. vendors' specs never state their rate of false positives, I was hoping it could be inferred/estimated from the technology they use, or some other data that is publicly available, etc.
