Description of problem:
There seems to be applets out there (e.g. the WebEx meeting) that is signed with the VeriSign Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority but openjdk does not recognise this as a trusted CA. Is this intentional?

How reproducible:
Every time

Seems the JVM gets it's certs from /etc/pki/java/cacerts

Our authoritative source for trusted root CAs is Mozilla; this root is not in there, so we don't ship it.  Not much more we can do about this; we don't want to start vetting individual CA roots in Fedora.

Fair enough.
 For what it's worth, I've now filed the same question with mozilla in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=676799
