Dear list members,

On 27 November 1998, France, Germany, Italy and Portugal blocked a
compromise on the digital signature Directive. The four member states
want the Directive to include a detailed annex of requirements on the
security keys and verification devices that have to be used by
electronic commerce operators.

Speaking after a ministerial meeting, Commissioner Bangemann criticized
the four countries' stance, saying that they were underestimating
developments such as the Internet.
