In March 20,That is, on Friday, We began to notice some of the unauthorized digital certificates on the Google domain。These certificates are issued at a mid-level certificate authority,It comes from a company called MCS Holdings s company。 These intermediate certificates issued from CNNIC

CNNIC is included in all of the major root store,Therefore, these errors may be issued a certificate about all browsers and operating systems trust。Windows, OS X, Linux, Chrome browser and Firefox ChromeOS system 33 And more browsers will be because public-key pinning He refused to issue these certificates, Although it is possible for other sites wrong certificate issued。

We promptly informed of this matter CNNIC and other mainstream browsers,And using an in ChromeCRLSets Push the shield of a certificate from the MCS Holdings。CNNIC No. 22 responded and explained that they signed a contract MCS certified sites only give them certificates and MCS Holdings。however,Compared to the private key in a suitable HSM, MCS install them in an intermediary agent。These devices masquerading as the intended destination for intercepting secure connections and are sometimes the company to monitor or intercept other legitimate grounds for the safety of employees transmission line。Usually the employee's computer must be set to trust the agent to be able to do it。however,under these circumstances,Agents are assumed to be granted the right to a public CA,This is a serious violation of the CA system。The situation with the 2013ANSSI of a mistakesimilar。

This interpretation is consistent with reality。However, CNNIC still entrust their weight in an organization has its inappropriate。

Chrome users do not need to take any action to protect CRLSet update。 We do not have any signs of abuse,We do not recommend that people change the password or take other measures。At the same time we are considering more appropriate next action。

one more time,This event highlightsCertificate transparentEfforts for the future protection certificate security is very important。
