Microsoft move to revoke trust in 20 root certificates could wreak havoc on sites

The root CAs in question are being removed because they were not able to comply with the audit requirements that Microsoft uses to ensure that their operations are secure and up to industry standards. The company started talking with the  organizations that operate the CAs about the program changes several months ago, to give them ample time to comply, the representative said.
