Entrust Joins World's Leading CAs to Form Certificate Authority Security Council, Advance Internet Security and Trusted SSL Ecosystem

DALLAS, Feb. 14, 2013, 2013 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- Entrust, Inc. joins leading global certification authorities in announcing the creation of the Certificate Authority Security Council (CASC), an advocacy group committed to the exploration and promotion of best practices that advance the security of websites and online transactions.


Through public education, collaboration, and advocacy, the CASC strives to improve understanding of critical policies and their potential impact on the Internet infrastructure. Members of the CASC include Comodo, DigiCert, Entrust, GlobalSign, Go Daddy, Symantec and Trend Micro.

"The CASC's core goals reinforce Entrust's drive to collaborate, innovate and standardize on technology and best practices that properly secure the Internet and the people who use it," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "This group's diligence will have a critical impact on the security techniques and policy that secure websites, transactions and online identities." Amid increasing threats from sophisticated hacker networks, global cybercriminal organizations and state-sponsored espionage, the CASC is coming together to advance security standards, encourage best practices and ultimately improve the deployment of a continually trustworthy SSL ecosystem.

"SSL has served as a key enabler of the Internet for close to 20 years and will remain a cornerstone of the online environment for some time to come," said Entrust Certificate Services general manager David Rockvam. "The CASC is a proactive alignment that will ensure SSL digital certificates and related trust infrastructures continue to secure the Internet even as technology evolves." In addition, the CASC supports the efforts of the CA/Browser Forum and other standards-setting bodies in their important work, and will continue to help develop reasonable and practical enhancements that improve trusted Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and certificate authority (CA) operations.

Coinciding with its launch, the CASC is announcing the first of a planned series of educational and advocacy efforts related to best practices in SSL deployment with a focus on the importance of online certificate status checking and revocation.

Specifically, the CASC will highlight the benefits of online certificate status protocol (OCSP) stapling for Web server administrators, software vendors, browser developers, and end-users through blog posts, conference presentations and other resources.

The backbone of Internet security for nearly two decades, the SSL protocol and certificates from publicly trusted CAs remain the most proven, reliable and scalable method to protect Internet transactions. The CASC is focused on tightening global standards to mitigate high-profile security incidents, improving research and collaboration that will continue to establish the security-robustness of the SSL ecosystem.
