Certificate Authority Security Counsel Continues to Help Secure the Internet

Two years ago in February of 2013, the largest SSL Certificate Authorities (CAs) in the world came to together to create the Certificate Authority Security Counsel (CASC). Now in 2015, where does that organization stand and what have they been up to over the last two years?

The CASC includes the participation of GoDaddy, Comodo, Digicert, Symantec, GlobalSign, Trustwave, Entrust and Trend Micro.

"We started out as an organization that was promoting all things around digital certificates and SSL," Dean Coclin, Senior Director Business development with Symantec, told eWEEK. "This group is about promoting Internet security and publicly trusted Certificate Authorities through education and advocacy."

Another key goal of the CASC is to help promote the best practices for the proper issuance and use of certificates by CAs, browsers and other interested parties.
