NIST ITL Bulletin: Preparing for and Responding to CA Compromise and Fraudulent Certificate Issuance

The NIST Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) bulletin, “Preparing for and Responding to Certification Authority Compromise and Fraudulent Certificate Issuance,” which information-security experts at NIST and Venafi co-authored, is intended alert both government agencies and private-sector organizations to the risks of certificate authority (CA) compromises from increasing attacks on trust. The bulletin also offers guidance on how to prepare for and respond to a CA compromise that results in fraudulently issued security certificates.
