Description

Once we import the latest Debian's Iceweasel package, it won't have CACert.org's root certificate enabled anymore. Do we want to do differently on our side?

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri over 5 years ago

  • Status changed from Confirmed to Resolved

At the monthly meeting, we've seen that:

  • basically nobody cares much about it
  • nobody volunteered to re-add this certificate and maintain the patch
  • when it disappeared from Tails for 6 weeks ([[!tails_ticket 6704]]), nobody complained for other reasons that blocked access to labs.riseup.net (that was temporarily using a cacert-issued certificate, and had HSTS enabled)

=> we won't reintroduce this root certificate ourselves in Tails.
