今年9月和10月，Google发现赛门铁克旗下的Root CA未经同意签发了众多域名的数千个证书，其中包括Google旗下的域名和不存在的域名。现在，Google宣布了对赛门铁克的惩罚：Android、Chrome以及其它Google产品不再信任赛门铁克的Root CA。Google称，它不能确定赛门铁克的Root CA以及该Root CA签发的证书将不会被用于拦截、破坏或冒充Google产品或用户的安全通信。因为赛门铁克不愿意详细说明这些证书的新用途，而他们也知道这些证书会对Google用户构成威胁，这迫使Google采取移除和不信任赛门铁克Root CA的预防性行动。
Over the course of the coming weeks, Google will be moving to distrust the “Class 3 Public Primary CA” root certificate operated by Symantec Corporation, across Chrome, Android, and Google products. We are taking this action in response to a notification by Symantec Corporation that, as of December 1, 2015, Symantec has decided that this root will no longer comply with the CA/Browser Forum’s Baseline Requirements. As these requirements reflect industry best practice and are the foundation for publicly trusted certificates, the failure to comply with these represents an unacceptable risk to users of Google products.
Symantec has informed us they intend to use this root certificate for purposes other than publicly-trusted certificates. However, as this root certificate will no longer adhere to the CA/Browser Forum’s Baseline Requirements, Google is no longer able to ensure that the root certificate, or certificates issued from this root certificate, will not be used to intercept, disrupt, or impersonate the secure communication of Google’s products or users. As Symantec is unwilling to specify the new purposes for these certificates, and as they are aware of the risk to Google’s users, they have requested that Google take preventative action by removing and distrusting this root certificate. This step is necessary because this root certificate is widely trusted on platforms such as Android, Windows, and versions of OS X prior to OS X 10.11, and thus certificates Symantec issues under this root certificate would otherwise be treated as trustworthy.
Symantec has indicated that they do not believe their customers, who are the operators of secure websites, will be affected by this removal. Further, Symantec has also indicated that, to the best of their knowledge, they do not believe customers who attempt to access sites secured with Symantec certificates will be affected by this. Users or site operators who encounter issues with this distrusting and removal should contact Symantec Technical Support.
