This bug requests inclusion in the NSS root store of the following root certificate owned by Entrust.

Friendly Name: Entrust Root Certification Authority - G4
Cert Location: https://bug1480510.bmoattachments.org/attachment.cgi?id=8997105
SHA-256 Fingerprint: DB3517D1F6732A2D5AB97C533EC70779EE3270A62FB4AC4238372460E6F01E88
Trust Flags: Email; Websites
Test URL: https://validg4.entrust.net/

This CA has been assessed in accordance with the Mozilla project guidelines, and the certificates approved for inclusion in bug #1480510

The next steps are as follows:

  1. A representative of the CA must confirm that all the data in this bug is correct, and that the correct certificate has been attached.
  2. A Mozilla representative creates a patch with the new certificate, and provides a special test version of Firefox.
  3. A representative of the CA uses the test version of Firefox to confirm (by adding a comment in this bug) that the certificate has been correctly imported and that websites work correctly.
  4. The Mozilla representative requests that another Mozilla representative review the patch.
  5. The Mozilla representative adds (commits) the patch to NSS, then closes this bug as RESOLVED FIXED.
  6. At some time after that, various Mozilla products will move to using a version of NSS which contains the certificates. This process is mostly under the control of the release drivers for those products.

Bruce, Please see step #1 above.

Bruce,

Can you test the most recent version of Firefox Nightly at your earliest convenience, and ensure that the Entrust Root Certification Authority - G4 is working correctly, and report back?

Firefox Nightly 72.0a1 (2019-11-27) or later should be fine. https://nightly.mozilla.org/

Thanks!

Doesn't seem to be working correctly. I tested with https://validg4.entrust.net. I received an error page, but clicked-thru using advanced button. The page shows a lock with a yellow triangle. The drop down says "Connection not secure."

Sorry, I tested with Firefox Nightly 72.0a1 (2019-11-26). Will wait and download again later.

Gotcha. Yeah, it went into 11-27. If you go to the About Nightly page, you can cause an immediate upgrade. For Windows, I think it's the hamburger menu -> help -> about nightly. MacOS it'll just be Firefox Nightly from the menu bar, then About Nightly.

I confirm that this root has been added and the correct trust bits set in Firefox 72.0a1 (2019-11-27) (64-bit). Thanks!

Looks good to me as well. Next is EV.
