We are very pleased to announce the addition of a new team member.

Krishna Sankar is joining our team as the new Squeak Cryptography
Certification Validation Officer.  

The goal of this position is to set a path for the cryptography team to
ensure that the Squeak Cryptography code meets the FIPS common criteria
http://niap.bahialab.com/cc-scheme/cc_docs/index.cfm which a first step on
the path to FIPS certification.

Krishna has a distinguished security background, has worked with a number of
government standards, has lead a workshop for Cisco on NIST PKI
http://middleware.internet2.edu/pki04/ , is a lead author for Cisco Press
WLAN Security book -
7825&rl=1 , and also contributes to OLPC.  We are very excited to have
Krishna join our efforts.

We are still searching for volunteers.  I would like to encourage anyone
that is even remotely interested in cryptography to join our efforts.  This
is the perfect time for you to join the group
http://lists.squeakfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/cryptography .  

If you need cryptography in your applications, working on our common
criteria validation effort will help you learn about cryptography and will
teach you about the common criteria process so that you can apply what you
learn to your own application.  We are working to divide the tasks into
manageable chunks so that individual developers can pick up a single piece
and contribute.  We are organizing the effort so that we can track, validate
and get proper feedback as to our progress.  We have no deadline, only a
path to follow.

Please help me welcome Krishna Sankar,
