Request to add CAcert.org keys to security/ca-roots
Last modified: 2005-11-26 14:47:13 UTC
security/ca-roots provides a X.509 root certificate database.
To quite CAcert's website (www.cacert.org):
"CAcert.org is a community driven, Certificate Authority that issues
certificates to the public at large for free."
CAcert's aim meshes well with FreeBSD's aims and that including
CAcert's root certificates in FreeBSD would benefit both projects.
CAcert has its root certificates included in Debian, Knoppix 3.8,
Gentoo, MirBSD, CentOS 4 and the Nokia 770. Negotiations are
underway with Mozilla, Grml and Fedora.
My only interest in CAcert.org is as a validated assurer.
Import CAcert.org's root certificates from
(authenticating these certificates is left as an exercise for
the reader :-)
How-To-Repeat: grep -y cacert /usr/ports/security/ca-roots/files/ca-root.crt
Do you think you could submit a patch?
