Palladium (disambiguation)

  • By a usage derived from the foregoing, a palladium is a safeguard that protects a social institution. For example, the British prime minister Benjamin Disraeli said that trial by jury is "the palladium of our liberties."

  • In an even newer usage, Palladium is Microsoft's codename for their new "trusted computing" architecture, the Palladium operating system. Following numerous critical comments about the system (which Microsoft says come from misunderstanding its goals) that gave Palladium a bad name, Microsoft is changing the name of the project into "Next-generation secure computing base."
