Important information about TLS/SSL certificates for U.S. Government trust

The Federal PKI Policy Authority (FPKIPA) has communicated a change that affects the way that browsers handle TLS/SSL certificates.  The FPKIPA has requested that the Federal Common Root be removed from all browsers.  This means that government-trusted certificates issued under a Federal Common Root chain, such as those issued under the IdenTrust ACES or DoD ECA programs, are no longer automatically trusted in standard browsers (public-trust).
