Howard Schmidt, perhaps the United States most visible chief security officer, has left online auction house eBay and is donning the jersey of a startup security hardware vendor.

Schmidt said goodbye to eBay last week and hello to Electronic Lifestyle Integration, where he will be chairman of the board. He said he was attracted to ELI because he believes the $199 appliance it sells will give home Internet users many of the same protections that corporations provide for their workers.

Schmidt joined eBay in May 2003 and will continue consulting for it.
