As of June 15, the certificates you get from Let's Encrypt will be a little shorter. We'll be removing some redundant data: the Certificate Policies extension containing the Object Identifier (OID) that identifies our Certification Practices Statement (CPS), along with the URL pointing to that CPS. The OID is already present in our intermediate certificates, and the URL can be found on our website and in the Common CA Database.
We're making this change to save bytes for visitors to websites using Let's Encrypt certificates, and to align more closely with the CA/Browser Forum Ballot SC62, which marks the policyQualifiers field (which contains the CPS URL) as NOT RECOMMENDED.
We expect this change will not cause any breakage for ACME clients or visitors to websites using Let's Encrypt certificates.
