The Linux Foundation announced this morning that their newest "founding members" are Adobe, Bloomberg, HP, Huawei, and SalesForce.com. These members come after the first round of original members of Amazon Web Services, Cisco, Dell, Facebook, Fujitsu, Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NetApp, Rackspace, and VMware.
Besides OpenSSL, other projects to receive support from this funding initiative is the Network Time Protocol and OpenSSH. (For those wondering, there's no funding for LibreSSL at this time.) The Open Crypto Audit Project is going to handle the security audit of the OpenSSL code-base.
Advisory board members to this initiative include Alan Cox, Matt Green, Dan Meredith, Eben Moglen, Bruce Schneier, Eric Sears, and Ted Ts'o.
More information on the Core Infrastructure Initiative update can be found via today's press release.
