After a series of incidents involving Symantec and its wrongfully issued certificates, Google eventually decided to distrust Symantecís certificates in March. The company is now releasing a more detailed plan for how that process will go.

The plan was first discussed on the Blink (Chromeís rendering engine) development mailing list with the community, and it started taking shape by the end of July of this year.
