A few Security type questions arose from the Face to Face 
meetings.  I'd like to post them here so the answers will
be public.

This is the first one.  Hopefully my notes will be clear:

DCL attendees were under the impression that Http basic 
authentication is becoming more and more unacceptable.

Users may have to move to the next higher level authentication.

People didn't know if Linux browsers support the higher levels.
So if http basic authentication becomes unacceptable, will 
Linux be in trouble?
