Unknown Root Certifiacte Authority in Firefox-Miscommunication Drama
OU = RSA Security 1024 V3
O = RSA Security Inc
Valid From: 2/22/01
Valid To: 2/22/26
In the first communication the RSA says that it doesn't own this root. As per Kathleen:
“…I have not been able to find the current owner of this root. Both RSA and VeriSign have stated in email that they do not own this root.
Therefore, to my knowledge this root has no current owner and no current audit, and should be removed from NSS."
Mozilla now says it has received official word from RSA that they do in fact own the root CA.
An official representative of RSA has sent me email to confirm that RSA
is still in possession of the private key for the "RSA Security 1024 V3"
RSA has also agreed that the "RSA Security 1024 V3" root certificate
should be removed from NSS.
This is a bit funny!
