Chrome 68 – Encryption will become a standard from July 2018

From July 2018 Google Chrome will mark all websites, without a valid SSL certificate, directly and immediately visible to every user as unsafe. Thus Google warns very clearly and consistently against the danger and the resulting risks of an unencrypted connection.

With the release of the Chrome browser version 68 in July of this year, a “Not-Secure” warning is displayed in the Chrome browser bar for each web page that does not use a valid SSL certificate.

We say thank you for 7 years of CertCenter – with 7,777 free wildcard certificates

In October 2010, CertCenter was founded. Although the company was registered in the commercial register for the first time on October 20, 2010, we see the whole of October as the founding month.

That’s how it works:

  • If you have not already done so, sign up for free
  • Log in to the CertCenter
  • Click “Order a certificate” on the left side of the menu
  • Next, to the “GlobalSign AlphaSSL Wildcard” product, click the “Order” button
  • At the bottom of the page, click the link “I’ve got a voucher!
       Please contact our sales team if this link doesn’t exist
  • Deposit the voucher code: CERTCENTER7
       If you’re looking for a 2-yr option, use voucher code CERTCENTER72, and you’ll n get a 50% discount
  • Et voilà – the price has been reduced!

Submit the order.

Thank you for your trust, your loyalty, and your business!

DigiCert & Symantec: A dream couple.

It has been almost a year since Symantec’s hitherto unscathed reputation in the certificate business was shaken because of inconsistencies in the vetting process of some Symantec RAs and the subsequent gloomy forecast by Google’s Chromium team.

These also retain the usual compatibility after a free certificate replacement (re-issue), even after April 2018. Continue reading

Symantec Recommends Re-Issuance to Avoid Chrome Browser Warnings [Update 1]

As you may be aware, Symantec Website Security Solutions has been in discussions with the browser community regarding their proposed treatment of our SSL/TLS certificates. In their most recent response, they highlighted that the timing laid out by Google’s latest proposal is not achievable. One aspect of Google’s proposal is that starting August 8, 2017, Chrome would gradually begin mistrusting all Symantec and all GeoTrust, Thawte, and RapidSSL branded certificates issued before June 1, 2016.
