March 2016 CA Communication

ACTION #4: In the process of implementing mozilla::pkix, a number of compatibility issues were encountered involving certificates that did not conform to the CA/Browser Forum's Baseline Requirements. To maintain interoperability, some workarounds were added to allow these malformed or improper certificates to validate successfully. However, to improve the state of the web PKI we plan to remove these workarounds, so certificates with these problems will not validate successfully. Please check your systems to see if you are issuing certificates with any of the problems listed below. Select all of the issues in the list below that exist in certificates that chain to your root certificates included in Mozilla's CA Certificate Program that are currently valid or being issued. Update your systems to stop such issuance by June 30, 2016. The Bug Numbers below refer to Bugzilla Bugs.

AC Camerfirma, S.A. (e) We use PrintableString in DN, but BMPString is forced by the application when special characters are found. 200 certificates affected. We are still fixing the problem. We plan to have a solution in a couple of months and make a substitution plan.

Autoridad de Certificacion Firmaprofesional Although we had answered (c) and (d) in the 2015 Communication, a thorough study reveals that we have never been in the (c) situation, indeed, EJBCA does not allow the combination of ca:False and inclusion of pathLenConstraint. We have audit some certificates, old and new ones and they do not include pathLenConstraint. The mistake is due to how Microsoft certificate visor interprets the absence of this field. On the other hand there are 115 with (d) issue that will be revoked by July, the 1st, 2016

Entrust For item (e), there are approximately 5000 certificates with this issue. As item(e) has not been corrected, the last issuance date could be as late as 30 June 2016 with a maximum expiry time of 30 September 2019. When item (e) is corrected, this information can be updated.
GlobalSign For (e), we do include character encoding other than PrintableString and UTF8 in DN fields. Specifically, we still allow Teletext String in the CN if the user asks for a CN encoded this way. We may also encode other DN fields with Teletext String. We posted a comment in Bugzilla asking for more info:

Sectigo (a) We've previously communicated (see Bug #982292, for example) that we have some existing intermediates with this issue. However, this seems unrelated to the workaround removal in Bug #982932, which is only for "new intermediates". (d) For IDNs, we put the U-label in the Subject CN and the A-label in the SAN dNSName. We believe that these are "corresponding", but we're aware that some folks disagree. However, this seems unrelated to the workaround removal in Bug #1245280.
