I would assume after reading RSA, that this CA belongs to RSA Security Inc but the issuer is 

Issuer: L=ValiCert Validation Network,O=ValiCert\, Inc.,OU=ValiCert

any chance to get this renamed please?

thanks in advance


Reproducible: Always
Yeah, this is Bizarre.  
Anyone know (remember?) how this happened? 
Was this because of CA mergers and acquisitions?

Does the Valicert cert belong there?  
What happened to that RSA cert?

This root, "OU = ValiCert Class 3 Policy Validation Authority" is owned by RSA.

It is a legacy, 1024-bit root. 

Email that I have from RSA says: "The Valicert Class 3 root is the signatory of the intermediate RSA Public Root V1 which we use to sign our end customers.

According to email I have from RSA, RSA is in the process of retiring this root. They have not done new signings with this root in over a year.
