I have received my electoral registration form from my local Bristol
City Council. It invites me to register by internet. To do this, I have
which immediately offers me:
and Kaspersky IS chokes on the digital certificate, because the issuer
isn't included in its base set of trusted certificate providers.
I'm using Firefox v3.6.8 and Kaspersky IS 2009.
I started looking:
Domain Name: REGISTERBYINTERNET.COM
Registrar: EASYSPACE LTD.

Name Server: NS2.NAMECITY.COM

Kaspersky reports the following about the certificate:
The site attempts to identify itself with invalid information
Certificate is not trusted, because it hasn't been verified by a
Organisation: Electoral Reform Services Ltd
Common Name: Kaspersky Anti-Virus personal root certificate
Organisation: Kaspersky Lab
So there is another UK company involved:
ELECTORAL REFORM SERVICES LIMITED
THE ELECTION CENTRE

Company No. 02263092
I wonder if CESG has checked all this out...
PS Quite a few sites use this Kaspersky certificate - and not for the
personal use that it appears to be provided for.
