+ - Dutch Agency Bars DigiNotar From Issuing Some Cert->

Submitted by Trailrunner7
Trailrunner7 (1100399) writes "A Dutch agency that regulates the actions of telecommunications providers has revoked DigiNotar's ability to issue certificates for digital signatures. The agency said that because of the way that DigiNotar behaved during the attack on its certificate authority infrastructure, the company no longer has the authority to issued so-called qualified certificates.

In a report released on Wednesday, the Board of the Independent Post and Telecommunications Authority (OPTA) said that because there was evidence of an attacker having compromised the server that was used to issue qualified certificates, the agency couldn't allow DigiNotar to continue issuing those certificates."
