I have no further questions or concerns about DigitalSign’s inclusion request; however, I urge anyone with concerns or questions to raise them on this list by replying directly in this discussion thread. Likewise, a representative of DigitalSign must promptly respond directly in the discussion thread to all questions that are posted.
This email begins the 3-week comment period, which I’m scheduling to close on or about Friday, August 12, 2022, after which, if no concerns are raised, we will close the discussion and the request may proceed to the approval phase (Step 10).
Mozilla Root Store Program
On July 21, 2022, we began a three-week public discussion period on the request from DigitalSign for inclusion of its two root certificates with only the email trust bit to be enabled--the DigitalSign Global Root RSA CA and the DigitalSign Global Root ECDSA CA. (Step 4 of the Mozilla Root Store CA Application Process).
Summary of Discussion and Completion of Action Items [Application Process, Steps 5-8]:
We did not receive any objections or other questions or comments in opposition to DigitalSign’s request. I do not believe that there are any action items for DigitalSign to complete.
Close of Public Discussion and Intent to Approve [Application Process, Steps 9-10]:
This is notice that I am closing public discussion (Application Process, Step 9) and that it is Mozilla’s intent to approve DigitalSign’s request (Step 10).
This begins a 7-day “last call” period for any final objections.
