    An open letter to Apple
    March 21, 2022 by PKI Consortium Apple PKIC

The impact of changes in centralized PKI have caused delays and disruption of third-party services that may or may not have been considered. Any PKI (public, private, or specific) must operate according to best practices, clear policies and without a single point of failure.
