Abstract: Software is a key asset of any new business. How do you protect the results of weeks or months of hard labour? Who owns the software and how do I mange its development to ensure its inherent value is maintained? Should I use Open Source, or even contribute to Open Source? What are the benefits and how does this measure up against the risks?

“He who is good with a hammer thinks everything is a nail.”
- Modified quote from the original by Abraham Maslow
How does one sell security? How does one commercialize such nebulous concepts such as “Trust”, “Security” and “Cryptography”? Cryptography, which is just one building block of security, is based on other more abstract building blocks such as algorithms which have a foundation on hard mathematical problems.
