Microsoft move to revoke trust in 20 root certificates could wreak havoc on sites

Quote:
Tens of thousands of secure websites might start to display certificate errors to their visitors in January, when Microsoft plans to stop trusting 20 certificate authorities (CAs) from around the world.

The list of certificates that are scheduled to be removed from Microsoft’s Trusted Root Certificate Program belong to CAs run by private or state-owned organizations from the U.S., France, the Czech Republic, Japan, Denmark, Chile, Turkey, Luxembourg, Ireland, Slovenia and Brazil.
Quote:
This doesn’t apply just to SSL/TLS certificates, but also to code-signing certificates that are used to validate that software programs have been released by legitimate developers and haven’t been modified.

Thanks Borg.
Very interesting. Sounds like Microsoft is getting serious about their CA. As well they should.

Only when Microsoft revokes all trust certs for all Microsoft products will I begin to believe they are serious about security. Not trolling just stating it as I see it.
