<p>Validating X.509 certificates correctly turns out to be pretty complicated (e.g. <a href="http://www.cs.utexas.edu/~shmat/shmat_ccs12.pdf">Georgiev2012</a>, <a href="https://crocs.fi.muni.cz/papers/rsa2018">Ukrop2018</a>).

<p>Validating X.509 certificates correctly turns out to be pretty complicated (e.g. <a href="http://www.cs.utexas.edu/~shmat/shmat_ccs12.pdf">Georgiev2012</a>, <a href="https://crocs.fi.muni.cz/papers/acsac2019">Ukrop2019</a>).
