#42 closed defect (fixed)

redacted cert dangers

Reported by: kent@… Owned by: draft-ietf-trans-rfc6962-bis@…
Priority: blocker Milestone:
Component: rfc6962-bis Version:
Severity: - Keywords:


Section 7.3 alludes to the dangers of accepting an SCT for a redacted (CA) cert. But it fails to provide details on what constitutes an "over-redacted" cert (vs. examples) and thus the warning here does not seem to be implementable by (TLS) clients.

Overly redacted: (Looking only at the labels in the Precertificate) Where the entirety of the domain space below the unredacted part of the domain name is not owned or controlled by a single entity.

This is out for review here:
We solicit feedback on the terminology used to describe domain names and how to describe such names that contain wildcards deemed too broad.

As previously decided, we will not specify client behaviour in 6962-bis.
