Question Invalid certificate?

Recently, I uploaded a Primo certificate for 229727 + 20273 from ellipsa.eu, but it was removed. Why? Is it invalid?

I've been trying to verify it locally and have finally found a problem with the certificate. If you open the certificate with a text editor, and then scroll down to key number 832, there are two entries that shouldn't be there, namely:
Code:
pm=2142
sf=0
If you delete those two lines and then resubmit the certificate, it should work fine. You may also want to email Marcel Martin (the maintainer of the ellipsa website and creator of Primo) to let him know about the problem with that certificate.

BTW, I haven't verified that removing those two lines will actually fix the problem. I am in the process of doing that right now though. Hopefully we'll know the answer in about 4 or 5 days. I'll post back once I know more.

I noticed that the P10099 certificate contains invalid lines too (at [186]):

Code:
pm=11371
sf=0
And stop the verification, because if it is valid it must be verified by the DB anyway.
