This is to announce the beginning of the public discussion phase of the Mozilla root CA inclusion process for iTrusChina’s vTrus Root CA and its vTrus ECC Root CA. See https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA/Application_Process#Process_Overview, (Steps 4 through 9).
These Root CAs are operated by iTrusChina Co., Ltd.
This current CA inclusion application has been tracked in the CCADB and in Bugzilla–
These new root CA certificates are valid from 2018 to 2043, and they are proposed for inclusion with the websites bit and EV enabled.
Mozilla is considering approving iTrusChina’s request. This email begins the 3-week comment period, after which, if no concerns are raised, we will close the discussion and the request may proceed to the approval phase (Step 10).
Root Certificate Information:
vTrus Root CA (RSA)
vTrus ECC Root CA (ECC)
iTrusChina’s current CPS is v.1.4.4 / Dec. 19, 2020
iTrusChina's 2021 BR Self-Assessment (PDF) is located here:
iTrusChina’s WebTrust auditor is PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP, and the most recent audit reports are dated March 24, 2021. These audit reports may be downloaded by clicking on the WebTrust seals at the bottom of iTrusChina’s repository page.
I was not able to find any incidents involving iTrusChina, no misissuances were found under the iTrusChina root CAs, and the issuing CAs appeared to be properly formatted.
Thus, this email begins a three-week public discussion period, which I’m scheduling to close on or about 30-April-2021.
A representative of iTrusChina must promptly respond directly in the discussion thread to all questions that are posted.
