Any CA that strictly follow BRGs 4.2.1 should not issue a certificate for paypa1.com or goog1e.com. Until recently this was also done by Let's Encrypt, but they stopped doing so in January 2019 - https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/let-s-encrypt-no-longer-checking-google-safe-browsing/82168. Maybe someone from the Let's Encrypt team can explain, how they are now fulfilling this requirement. /Rufus _______________________________________________ dev-security-policy mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-security-policy
