A very noble manifesto, though the Internet is not unique in being 'untrustworthy', there are any number of printed books published by cranks and people with an 'axe to grind'!
I do think however, that there is a distinction between 'security' and 'trust'. CIS is an awesome product and one (possibly the only one) that provides real 'default deny' security, and I am frankly in awe of you and Comodo for making it available for free. Thank you.
But 'trust' is something entirely different. Yes, we have to trust that CIS really does provide the security you claim, few of us are technically savvy enough to know for sure that it does. For the record, I trust that it does, it's never let me down yet anyway.
Creating 'trust online' is a very different kettle of fish however. Security can be imposed but trust has to be earned. TLS and certificate pairs are based on trust of course but we still see occasional examples where this trust has been compromised (even Dell are not immune to these things: http://en.community.dell.com/dell-blogs/direct2dell/b/direct2dell/archive/2015/11/23/response-to-concerns-regarding-edellroot-certificate
) so who do we trust?
I'm reminded of the fable of the marauding cat that was terrorising a group of mice. One mouse came up with a plan to place a bell around the cat's neck so they could hear it coming. All the mice applauded this brilliant solution, until one of them asked "who will bell the cat?"...
Creating trust online is a very noble aim but I fear it's fraught with difficulties. I trust Comodo for example, because you have earned my trust, but that does not necessarily mean that I also trust everyone that Comodo trusts, and certainly not everyone that those trusted by Comodo trust. So 'who will bell the cat?'
