Change to One Year TLS/SSL Validity

Monday, August 10th, 2020 | Mark Bedford | Comments Off on Change to One Year TLS/SSL Validity

Due to changes in browser requirements, QuoVadis will change to 397 day maximum validity for public TLS/SSL on August 27, 2020 at 23:59 UTC. 397 days equates to one year validity plus limited time to accommodate early renewals. After the change, the new policies will be automatically available for provisioning.

  • This change affects all CAs industry-wide. It applies to Business SSL (OV), EV, and Qualified Web Authentication certificates.
  • Two-year certificates issued before the August 27 changeover will continue to work in browsers.
  • This change does not affect other certificate types including code signing, document signing, client, S/MIME certificates, or private TLS/SSL.
