Revenue Bouncy Castles

When renewing my Revenue On-Line Service digital certificate, I was presented with the following:

In order to renew your ROS digital certificate, ROS requires that you run third-party software provided by the Legion of the Bouncy Castle. The Legion of the Bouncy Castle is a well-respected supplier of security software that is approved by the Office of the Revenue Commissioners for use with ROS.

I’m sure the Legion produces wonderful software, and I applaud the Revenue for using open source software for security, but you’d think they’d be able to afford a developer to hack the source and change the bloody issuer to something a teeny bit less dodgy-looking…
