My OpenPGP client (SED) uses user-approved pinning to decide whether to accept a never-before-seen certificate when connecting using TLS/SSL to send/receive e-mail via SMTP/POP3.


Recently it’s been asking me to approve new certificates for each of Google’s many mail servers (I see many of them because I travel a lot internationally and Google seems to load-share based on geography). (I see the same thing for other large free e-mail providers, but none even fractionally as many servers as Google. I think I’ve seen about 35 for Google.)


The new certs all use “Google CA” as their CA. I assume this is legit, but do any of you know for sure? (I haven’t seen much online about it.)
