About an hour ago I was contacted by the Dutch Government with more details about the DigiNotar Debacle. It seems that they’re doing a great job keeping on top of things and doing the job that DigiNotar should’ve done in July. They sent a spreadsheet with a list of 531 entries on the currently known bad DigiNotar related certificates.
The list isn’t pretty and I’ve decided that in the interest of defenders everywhere without special connections, I’m going to disclose it. The people that I have spoken with in the Dutch Government agree with this course of action.
