Ecdysiasts United For Overdressing
Please consider the following root certificates, issued by Comodo and USERTrust / USERFirst, for addition to port security/ca-roots.
Disclaimer: I don't work for either Comodo or USERTrust / USERFirst, but I'm a frequent user (and soon-to-be employee) of a weblog hosting company using some of their root certificates.
URLs for Comodo root certificates and CRLs:
- http://www.comodo.com/repository/AAACertificateServices.cer or http://www.instantssl.com/ssl-certificate-support/certs/AAACertificateServices.crt CRL: http://crl.comodo.net/AAACertificateServices.crl
- http://www.comodo.com/repository/SecureCertificateServices.cer or http://www.instantssl.com/ssl-certificate-support/certs/SecureCertificateServices.crt CRL: http://crl.comodo.net/SecureCertificateServices.crl
- http://www.comodo.com/repository/TrustedCertificateServices.cer or http://www.instantssl.com/ssl-certificate-support/certs/TrustedCertificateServices.crt CRL: http://crl.comodo.net/TrustedCertificateServices.crl
The certificate URLs ending in .crt are sent as MIME type application/x-x509-ca-cert and the .cer ones (incorrectly) as chemical/x-cerius, but their raw content is the same. The CRLs are application/x-pkcs7-crl, not application/pkix-crl, apparently to placate Mozilla. (I'm not sure whether or how much it matters, but I wanted to mention it in case it does.)
URLs for USERTrust / USERFirst root certificates and CRLs:
- http://www.usertrust.com/cacerts/UTN-USERFirst-ClientAuthenticationandEmail.crt CRL: http://crl.usertrust.com/UTN-USERFirst-ClientAuthenticationandEmail.crl
- http://www.usertrust.com/cacerts/UTN-USERFirst-Hardware.crt CRL: http://crl.usertrust.com/UTN-USERFirst-Hardware.crl
- http://www.usertrust.com/cacerts/UTN-DataCorpSGC.crt CRL: http://crl.usertrust.com/UTN-DATACorpSGC.crl
- http://www.usertrust.com/cacerts/UTN-USERFirst-Object.crt CRL: http://crl.usertrust.com/UTN-USERFirst-Object.crl
The CRLs are application/x-pkcs7-crl, not application/pkix-crl, apparently to placate Mozilla. (I'm not sure whether or how much it matters, but I wanted to mention it in case it does.) Note that the first and last certificates are for other uses than SSL (S/MIME and object signing, respectively). If security/ca-roots is for SSL certificates only, feel free to ignore them.
