I am reading a bit on the certificate transparancy project initiazed by google. (More info at http://www.certificate-transparency.org), this technology tries to introduce transparency in the creation of CA certificates. Their goal is that all SSL Certificates would be logged in multiple, publicly available logs run by independent companies and that browsers would only provide trust to certificates that are logged. Domain owners and interested parties would monitor the logs to detect certificates that were either misissued by the CA or not actually authorized by the organization (source).
I can't find a lot online on the adoption of this technology, is it really a game changer that in the future will prevent hacks like the digicert incident? Or is this just an initiative that isn't widely adopted?
