Hitting him with nails

PKI is having hard time, as more and more human mistakes are revealed, which undermine PKI's position.

In fact,  PKI is not about technology, its about people actions. People forget or don't care to guard their property (private keys, in this case). This is common - people are negligent. There was a study several years ago, which revealed that a huge part (40-something %, if memory serves) of office workers shared their passwords for a chocolate bar. Why would they invest time and resources into guarding other one's secrets, if they don't guard their own?
