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

Friendly name: TWCA Global Root CA
Certificate location:
SHA1 Fingerprint: 9C:BB:48:53:F6:A4:F6:D3:52:A4:E8:32:52:55:60:13:F5:AD:AF:65
Trust flags: Websites, Email, Code Signing
Test URL:

This CA has been assessed in accordance with the Mozilla project guidelines, and the certificates approved for inclusion in bug #810133.

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 certificate. This process is mostly under the control of the release drivers for those products.
Robin, Please see step #1 above.

I have confirmed the attached certificate file, SHA1 Fingerprint and test site URL are correct.

Please proceed with testing.

Important reminder:
At this phase, we change the NSS root CA list, which covers domain validation.

At this time, please test that your root has been correctly included and 
that trust flags are set correctly, and that connections to your test site work
with basic domain validation status.

If you have requested EV (extended validation), this is NOT yet enabled,
it will be done at a later time, in a separate bug.

The test build is available at

Please download a binary for your preferred operating system, you probably want one of the following files:

Can a CA representative please verify the trust settings for correctness?


(See also the initial comments in this bug.
 You should ensure that you're using a fresh profile,
 to make sure you really see the trust bits provided by this build,
 not trust settings that you had set manually in an application profile.

I tested the try-win32 version and verified with following result:

1. TWCA Global Root CA is in the Builtin Object Token list and the certificate fingerprints is correct.  
2. CA certificate trust setting enabled 3 trust flags by default.
