Link: The Difference Between Root Certificate Authorities, Intermediates, and Resellers

June 18, 2023

Andrew Ayer's The Difference Between Root Certificate Authorities, Intermediates, and Resellers is about exactly that issue in much more detail than what I wrote recently. Although I knew some of the information in this article, other pieces were new to me.

Also very relevant to this area is Ayer's earlier The SSL Certificate Issuer Field is a Lie. This covers what it says in the title and is a fun read; the rabbit hole goes pretty deep.
