Google announced its decision to ban Camerfirma certificates after the company was given more than a month to explain 26 incidents related to its certificate-issuance process. The ban will be effective with the Chrome 90’s launch, which is expected to be released in April of 2021. After the release, websites with the TLS certificate issued by the company will share an error message and will not load in Chrome.
2 new incidents in January
Mozilla also published these incidents with details, going back to March of 2017 in a wiki page. The page includes lists of confirmed or suspected issues involving the Spanish company. The incidents show that the company can’t meet the industry standards in quality and security to be able to process of issuing TLS certificates. The latest incidents took place in January of 2021. So far, only Google has made an announcement about the company, however, we are expecting similar decisions from other browser companies in the near future.
