Cleanup of 1024-bit CA certificates

Mozilla is working towards removal of all 1024 bit CA certificates in their trust store. That means that if you depend on root CA or intermediate CA that has those weak RSA keys, your website or server may stop working in near future.

The first batch of changes will affect Firefox 32 users and Fedora 20 (after updating to ca-certificates-2014.2.1-1.0.fc20).

Go to kuix.de for more information, how to tell if you’ll be affected (without using Qualys SSL Labs scanner) and what to do if you are.
