Two-Year Certificate Phase-Out
INDUSTRY MANDATED CHANGE
Starting Wednesday, August 19, 2020, Sectigo will no longer be able to offer two-year public TLS certificates due to an industry-wide requirement set by Apple and Google, stating that any two-year TLS certificate issued after August 30, 2020, will be distrusted in their browsers.
Any two-year TLS certificate issued before 12:00am UTC on August 19, 2020, will be valid for two-years (up to 825 days). Beginning August 19, 2020, Sectigo will only be issuing one-year (up to 398 days) TLS certificates.
This only applies to public TLS certificates. Private-root and other types of certificates (e.g. Code Signing Certificates, S/MIME certificates, etc.) will be unaffected and will have the same maximum validity that they have today.
In preparation for this upcoming industry-wide change, we have prepared a few resources for our customers and partners.
• Sectigo Pulse Webinar (https://sectigo.com/resource-library/q2-sectigo-pulse-webinar)
• Root Causes Podcast: Apple to Drop Support for Two-year SSL Certificates (https://sectigo.com/resource-library/root-causes-1-73-apple-to-drop-support-for-two-year-ssl-certificates)
In addition, Sectigo offers Subscription SSL bundles for our partners and direct customers who purchase certificates through our websites. Subscription SSL does not apply to customers using our certificate management solutions. To learn more about Subscription SSL, https://sectigo.com/resource-library.
