Trustwave should have had its certificate authority revoked from
browsers, but it is not in the CA business. It is in the spying
business, not in the trust business, but in the distrust business. The
scandal is not that it abused its CA authority, but that it was given CA
authority. Trustwave spies. That is its job. Soldiers kill people and
break things. That is their job.
Trustwave's behavior is not scandalous. Mozilla playing footsie with
trustwave is scandalous.
