23/10/2016 Important Notice Regarding GlobalSign SSL Certificates
GlobalSign will be moving its issuing hierarchy for SSL products back to the default Root-R1
that was affected by the cross certificate revocation last week. That issue has since been resolved
and caches have all expired. It is now safe to switch back to Root-R1.
Although GlobalSign will be switching the default issuing CA, you may continue to use your current GlobalSign intermediate. Customers that are experiencing issues with the Root-R3 hierarchy will want to switch to Root-R1 along with this change.
Any new orders, renewals, or reissues should begin using the default R1 intermediate provided with your order.
This rollback will take place during the following hours:
- BST: 2:00am – 3:00am Monday 24th October 2016
- EDT: 9:00pm –10:00pm Sunday 23rd October 2016
- UTC:1:00am – 2:00am Monday 24th October 2016
15/10/2016 New SHA-1 product - Symantec® Secure Site Pro SHA-1 Private SSL
Symantec® Secure Site Pro SHA-1 Private SSL certificate is offered off of the private CA hierarchies
(VeriSign PCA3-G1/G2 Root CA) and allows you to support older, legacy devices and systems that are
incompatible with the newer, industry-standard SHA-2 Hashing Algorithm.
This certificate is not designed to work with modern browsers. It is available with a full SHA-1 chain and
SHA-mixed chain and supports RSA (not DSA or ECC). This solution is perfect for use on private networks
like office intranets, for use with network appliances and for a range of other enterprise-level functions.
Comodo Alters Telephone Verification Process for all OV/EV SSL and Code Signing Certificates
Comodo has announced a revision to their OV/EV/Code Signing phone call verification process.
They will NO LONGER accept telephone listings from 3rd party directories such as Yellow Pages, 192.com,
Manta, etc. or telephone bill statements. They will ONLY verify the company telephone number through
Dun & Bradstreet or Legal Opinion Letters. This change is currently live and only applies to new orders and clients.
