>Thawte is part of Verisign, that is a spin-off from RSA Security.

They were an independent company in South Africa with operations in
the US and other places.  Verisign bought them in 2000.  I never heard
of them having any connection to RSA, which has always been in the US.

I presume that Verisign sold them to Symantec along with the rest of
the SSL business.
