Symantec’s Melbourne Security Data Centre generates root keys for certificate authorities, a task that can’t be undertaken lightly given their vital role in online security. Here’s a photo tour of the rarely-seen and highly-secured centre, including the “Ceremony Room” used to generate the new keys.
Outsiders are rarely admitted to the centre, and no unauthorised photography is allowed. These pictures were supplied by Symantec following a tour of the location by technology journalists last week.
Disclosure: Angus Kidman travelled to Melbourne as a guest of Symantec.
