And because such a list doesn't help. In a browser all CAs are
implicitly cross-certified. Thus a single not that well managed CA sets
the entire security level to its own. Even if all CAs would technically
and organizational work at par I am pretty sure that a government or a
bigcorp is able to convince its home CA to create a fraudulent certificate.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
