Shifting ETA of ECDSA Root and Intermediates?


#1

What’s the deal with ECDSA Root/Intermediates?

As of March 20 2017, the site said:


https://web.archive.org/web/20170330231833/https://letsencrypt.org/upcoming-features/

	ECDSA Root and Intermediates

	    ETA: Before September 1, 2017

	Currently Let’s Encrypt only signs end-entity certificates with RSA intermediates. Let’s Encrypt will generate an ECDSA root and intermediates which can be used to sign end-entity certificates.

Today, Oct 31, 2018

	ECDSA Root and Intermediates

	    ETA: Q1 2019

	Currently Let’s Encrypt only signs end-entity certificates with RSA intermediates. Let’s Encrypt will generate an ECDSA root and intermediates which can be used to sign end-entity certificates.

The only thing that’s changed is the date. No info, no comment, nothing.

Is there a reason for the delay? Something that’s being waited on?

[Non-serious] Hopefully with a few extra delays we can skip directly to EdDSA :smiley:

I guess the transparent and open nature of Let’s Encrypt only implies the use of CT logs and a RFC. It seems openness about the internal affairs of LE doesn’t exist.
