IMPORTANT REMINDER REGARDING CHANGES TO SHA-1 SSL CERTIFICATES BEGINNING NOVEMBER 17, 2014

 

 

TRUSTZONE will be removing the 2 and 3 year options when ordering SHA-1 SSL Certificates.

 
VALIDITY OF SHA-1: NOVEMBER 2014

Beginning November 17, 2014, TRUSTZONE will be removing the 2 and 3 year options when ordering SHA-1 SSL Certificates and will not issue SHA-1 Certificates that are valid past December 31, 2016 under any circumstances. Previously, TRUSTZONE was planning to limit SHA-1 SSL Certificate validity periods to two years in January 2015 and one year in January 2016. This accelerated change is due to recent CA/Browser Forum ballots and Google Chrome updates which are intended to drive the industry firmly towards the January 1, 2017 SHA-1 deprecation date. Changes to TRUSTZONE Systems include:

  • Ordering pages will be updated to limit the maximum validity period of SHA-1 SSL Certificates to one year

  • APIs will reject any SHA-1 SSL Certificate orders that are for more than one year

  • Re-issuance of SHA-1 SSL Certificates will result in validity periods not to exceed December 31, 2016, regardless of the original purchase date or how many months are remaining

  • Re-issuance of SHA-2 Certificate to a SHA-1 Certificate will result in validity periods not to exceed December 31, 2016, regardless of the original purchase date or how many months are remaining

We understand this is short notice for our customers, but believe this is necessary to react to recent industry changes. Please don't hesitate to contact us for assistance with this transition.
