Red Hat creates Certificates-Shipped project

Nice, Kiur Seifried of Red Hat has a new project listing the certs/keys the use. I wish all vendors did this.

The idea is to create a comprehensive list of shipped certs/keys/etc by open source vendors/distributions/projects so that:

1) we have a list of secrets maintained by external parties that we rely upon
2) we can audit them and make sure we should be trusting them
3) also spot changes more easily (since the existing corpus is available)

I’m guessing there are some surprises waiting for us.
