For what it's worth, I was using PAIN in presentations for Open Market
in 1995. As far as I can recall, I altered it from CAIN (which Greg Rose
mentioned). I won't claim that anyone else picked it up from me (with a
few exceptions that I know about).

After a while, I stopped using it because it's insufficient, and because
audiences had started to understand enough that one could stop talking
about nonrepudiation.
