A listener question about free certs was briefly addressed in 
http://www.grc.com/sn/sn-228.htm last week's episode  of the 
http://www.grc.com/SecurityNow.htm Security Now!  podcasts, featuring Steve
Gibson and Leo Laporte.

On the whole, Steve was very favorable as regards the same issuer referred
to as  http://cert.startcom.org/ StartCom .
