Proposal for certificate policy

Frank Hecker writes in the netscape.public.mozilla.crypto newsgroup:
As noted in prior discussions, the Mozilla Foundation and staff are considering adopting a formal policy regarding selection of new CA certificates for inclusion in the default certificate database distributed with Mozilla, Firefox, Thunderbird, etc. They have asked me to take the lead on attempting to create such a policy. As with prior policies I've been involved with (e.g., the policy for handling reports of Mozilla security vulnerabilities) my preferred approach is to try and develop this policy through a process of discussions in public forums and with parties affected by the policy (e.g., Mozilla developers and new CAs).

Check out the two Proposals:
- Mozilla Certificate Policy
- Mozilla Certificate FAQ
