New Class 3 certificate expected for May

Question of a member of the community: The Class3 certificate is set to expire this year in May. What do I need to do with:
a) My existing certificates that were signed against the Class 3
b) Installation of the new Class3 and when will that happen?

Answer from our volunteer critical system administrator: Thank you for this question. We started the resigning procedure already last year. We plan to use the same private key for the new class-3-certificate, so the old certificates will remain valid.

As the resigning needs to be done in the data centre in the Netherlands, this is planned for February/March – depending on the pandemic situation. So there will be enough time to replace the Class-3-Root in your configuration (Certificate-Chain) or your Browsers.
