Name        : ca-certificates
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 2015.2.3
Release     : 1.0.fc20
URL         : https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/CA-Certificates
Summary     : The Mozilla CA root certificate bundle
Description :
This package contains the set of CA certificates chosen by the
Mozilla Foundation for use with the Internet PKI.

Update Information:

This is an update to the set of CA certificates released with NSS version 3.18

However, the package modifies the CA list to keep several legacy CAs still trusted for compatibility reasons. Please refer to the project URL for details.

If you prefer to use the unchanged list provided by Mozilla, and if you accept any compatibility issues it may cause, an administrator may configure the system by executing the "ca-legacy disable" command.

This update corrects the Fedora legacy classification of four root CA certificates, which had trust added or removed in the upstream 2.1 and 2.2 releases.


* Tue Mar 24 2015 Kai Engert <kaie at redhat.com> - 2015.2.3-1.0
- Update to CKBI 2.3 from NSS 3.18 with legacy modifications
- Fixed a mistake in the legacy handling of the upstream 2.2 release:
  Removed two AOL certificates from the legacy group, because
  upstream didn't remove them as part of phasing out 1024-bit
  certificates, which means it isn't necessary to keep them.
- Fixed a mistake in the legacy handling of the upstream 2.1 release:
  Moved two NetLock certificates into the legacy group.
* Tue Dec 16 2014 Kai Engert <kaie at redhat.com> - 2014.2.2-1.0
- Update to CKBI 2.2 from NSS 3.17.3 with legacy modifications
- Update project URL
* Thu Nov 20 2014 Kai Engert <kaie at redhat.com> - 2014.2.1-1.5
- Introduce the ca-legacy utility and a ca-legacy.conf configuration file.
  By default, legacy roots required for OpenSSL/GnuTLS compatibility
  are kept enabled. Using the ca-legacy utility, the legacy roots can be
  disabled. If disabled, the system will use the trust set as provided
  by the upstream Mozilla CA list. (See also: rhbz#1158197)
- Includes the fixes for rhbz#1158343
* Sun Sep 21 2014 Kai Engert <kaie at redhat.com> - 2014.2.1-1.1

  compatibility issues with software based on OpenSSL/GnuTLS,
