Description of problem:
I would apply for the addition of the DFN-PCA SSL certificate. The
cert is available at

As far as I know, the requirements are fulfilled:

(a) The DFN-PCA is root CA in the DFN association
(b) certification is offered to the public, for non-commercial
organizations without fee
(c) info about DFN-PCA authority http://www.dfn-cert.de/eng/dfncert/
(d) policy

--- http://www.dfn.de/content/welcometodfn/aboutdfn/ ---
"The DFN-Verein is a non-profit association of the research,
development and education sector in Germany to promote computer-based
communication and information services."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cert not present

Root Certificate from https://www.cacert.org/ would be great.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2005-01-27 04:53:10 EST
In the future, we are keeping the OpenSSL root CA bundle in sync with
the Mozilla root CA bundle.  If and when the DFN-PCA cert is accepted
by Mozilla, it will get pulled into a future version of OpenSSL
automatically.  Please move this bug to ASSIGNED when the upstream
Mozilla bug is closed.
Comment 3 Nicolas Vilz 'niv' 2005-07-22 08:17:56 EDT
other distros have outsourced ca-certs for console progs. the package is called
ca-certificates. On these distros you refer on /etc/ssl/certs/ and can easily
add some for your own ... would that be a big problem for you guys?
Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2005-09-08 11:58:35 EDT
This problem will be resolved in a future release of Fedora Core if the
certificate is included in the Mozilla root CA bundle. See comment #2.
Comment 5 Bernie Innocenti 2006-08-03 19:37:19 EDT
Please don't wait for Mozilla to catch up, it won't be
soon enough for FC6.

Missing support out of the box in Fedora is preventing
us to switch to CaCert for SSL.
