RSA the company or RSA the algorithm?
I don't see how the patent expiry will kill either of them. RSA the
algorithm is widely used. Developers who are using RSA Security Inc.'s
BSAFE toolkit won't be too keen on rebuilding their code around another
toolkit. And RSA Security Inc. has known all along that the patent will
expire and if they haven't planned for it, they will have some very unhappy
shareholders on their hands.
