Internet certificate regulation in Europe – GÉANT Position Statement

On 14 April 2021 GÉANT shared a position statement with the European Commission that reflects concerns from our community regarding the increasingly punitive environment of internet certificate regulation in Europe.

The statement highlights how the regulation of internet certificates by the CA/Browser forum is largely out of European control, and what cost this brings to bear on European institutions and end-users.

For more background information on the context behind the statement, we recommend reading the article ‘The Tough World of Internet Certificates’ written by Hank Nussbacher (IUCC) last year.

If you have any questions regarding the position statement itself, please contact us.
