This request from SSL.com is to include the “SSL.com Root Certification Authority RSA”, “SSL.com Root Certification Authority ECC”, “SSL.com EV Root Certification Authority RSA”, and “SSL.com EV Root Certification Authority ECC” root certificates, turn on the Email and Websites trust bits for the two non-EV roots, turn on the Websites trust bit for the two EV roots, and enable EV treatment for the two EV roots.
SSL.com is a commercial organization that provides digital certificates in over 150 countries worldwide, with the goal of expanding adoption of encryption technologies and best practices through education, tools and expertise. The request is documented in the following bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1277336 BR Self Assessment is here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=8881939 Summary of Information Gathered and Verified: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=8895068 * Root Certificate Download URL: RSA: https://www.ssl.com/repository/SSLcomRootCertificationAuthorityRSA.cer ECC: https://www.ssl.com/repository/SSLcomRootCertificationAuthorityECC.cer EV RSA R2: hhttps://www.ssl.com/repository/SSLcom-RootCA-EV-RSA-4096-R2.pem EV ECC: www.ssl.com/repository/SSLcomEVRootCertificationAuthorityECC.cer * Documents are in English https://www.ssl.com/repository/ CP/CPS: https://www.ssl.com/app/uploads/2017/06/SSLcom_CP_CPS_Version_1_2_1.pdf * CA Hierarchy: The SSL.com root certificates currently only have internally-operated intermediate certificates. These root certs have not been cross-signed by any other CA. It is possible that these root certs may issue externally operated subCA in the future, but SSL.com states that they will comply to Mozilla's Root CA Program and be either technically constrained or publicly disclosed and audited. * This request is to turn on the Email and Websites trust bits for the two non-EV roots, turn on the Websites trust bit for the two EV roots, and enable EV treatment for the two EV roots. ** Organization and Identity Verification Procedures are described in section 3.2 of the CP/CPS. Section 184.108.40.206: If the Subject Identity Information is to include the name or address of an organization, SSL.com shall verify the identity and address of the Applicant.
