Description

As part of the ongoing security improvements, several SSL and code signing trust bits for 1024-bit root certificates have been removed from Network Security Services (NSS) used in Firefox and other products. Those include AC Raíz Certicámara, Entrust.net, GTE CyberTrust, NetLock, TDC Internet, ValiCert and VeriSign. 1024-bit root certificates will all be removed over the next few Firefox releases, because these are no longer considered as secure.
