The article itself is English (to my suprise, honestly) but if there's
any pheriferal information you'd like to have translation off, I'm
natively Dutch and wouldn't mind helping out.

Practically all Dutch government websites of any significance have a
Diginotar certificate. The government is stalling updates that block
Diginotar in hopes of not destroying consumer trust, although that
trust is misplaced. Under these is the DigiD project, which is
considered an equivalent to having a passport on the internet by the
Dutch government.

I wonder if hilarity will ensue.
