Beginning March 1, 2018, Comodo CA will reduce the maximum lifetime for all SSL (TLS) certificates to a maximum of 825 days, or just over 27-months. This timeline is down from the current term of 39-months, meaning the maximum validity for an SSL certificate will be two years. Three-year certificates will be removed as options from our retail website, API’s and provisioning portals.
This change follows the industry-wide policy change being implemented by the CA Browser Forum, which is requiring this certificate lifetime reduction policy for all Certification Authorities.
What do these changes mean to you?
Comodo CA will work closely with all of our customers to ensure a smooth transition. If you have questions, please review our FAQ, or contact your Comodo CA account manager or Comodo CA Support directly at Support@ComodoCA.com. Comodo CA channel partners can contact us at Partners@ComodoCA.com.
