Q

PKI breaches

Have there been known hacks on PKI technology? If so, can you provide me with the information?


None that I have ever heard of. There have been problems in implementations -- the fake Microsoft certificate that was generated due to problems at Verisign, for example. And a small bug in how PGP certificates were formed.
