We released the source to most of PSM on 3/31 of this year. As you mentioned, it was missing the RSA algorithm, which was a problem for people outside the Netscape firewall.

We started work on re-implementing the RSA algorithm yesterday, and have a first draft checked in now. We hope to have NSS 3.1 in beta within a week or so. Improvements to PSM to allow it to build and work outside the firewall can now also begin (since PSM requires NSS).

You may wish to watch for updates on the crypto newsgroup: <news://news.mozilla.org/n…ape.public.mozilla.crypto>

We will also have updates on our main PKI web page <http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/pki/>
