Remember S.E.T.?

The other day, while cleaning out some drawers at home, I found an old registration confirmation for S.E.T from VISA.
I must admit, I hardly remembered.
S.E.T. - short for Secure Electronic Transaction(s) - was an attempt by VISA (and others) to establish secure protocols for electronic payments.
I think we even implemented this in an online shop, around 2000. At least we had a plan to do so, not sure if we really did...

Anyway, if you want to get nostalgic, check it on Wikipedia.

And while you're at it, check out WAP as well, should go to the same drawer shredder.
