Irish Tax Authorities Enlist help of 'Legion of the Bouncy Castle'

While doing my taxes I encountered this page on the government's tax website:

Yes, this is indeed real. In order to file taxes you have to approve an applet signed by the "Legion of the Bouncy Castle".... The fact that they are an open source encryption organization doesn't really excuse the fact the the revenue commissioners ought to have got their own cert...

Bear in mind this is from the people who told you to trust Electronic Voting.

So much for security...
