CAcert applies to become “Interested Party” for the CA/Browser forum

CAcert Inc. board decided with the motion m20140706.3 to apply at the CA/Browser forum [1] as “Interested Party”. The CA/Browser forum is responsible for the guidelines how to use X.509 certificates.

The reasons are:

  • get the latest ideas and hints how the the certificate business is developing
  • get the chance to show how CAcert Web of Trust works and that it might be an alternative for the commercial registry authority approach

CAcert nominated Benedikt Heintel as contact person to the CA/Browser forum.
