We have just updated our AlwaysOnSSL API. The API now supports the synchronous ordering of TLS certificates with up to 2048-bit RSA, 4096-bit RSA and ECC (previously only 2048-bit RSA).
Despite numerous changes on the part of the Certification Authority, as a customer of CertCenter AG you do not have to make any adjustments to your existing connection to the CertCenter API. Your existing mod_fauth integration will also remain compatible.
For the generation of certificates with larger RSA keys or ECC only a CSR generated accordingly is necessary (with 4096-bit RSA or ECC key). The CertCenter API then intelligently interprets the rest and does the work for you in the background.
The e-mail certificates (S/MIME) from Sectigo are now also available as a cost-effective alternative to the existing e-mail certificate products (e.g. from GlobalSign). Sectigo e-mail certificates can encrypt and sign e-mails but can also be used for client authentication.
The following Sectigo products are now available:
- Sectigo E-Mail Certificate Basic
- Sectigo E-Mail Certificate Pro
- Sectigo Enterprise E-Mail Certificate
In 2018, approximately 482 million phishing attacks were carried out – more than twice as many as in 2017.
A recent study by the Georgia Institute of Technology Cyber Forensics Innovation Laboratory (CyFI) found that 99.987% of Web sites using an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate are not associated with common forms of online crime.
The company name is displayed in the address bar by the EV certificates (Extended Validation).
ComodoCA becomes Sectigo. This name change will probably raise many questions for you. We want to answer the most critical issues here:
- Why does Comodo CA now call itself Sectigo?
- As a partner of CertCenter AG, what must/can I change?
- Do my customers have to change anything?
- Does the name change have any effect on already existing certificates?
First, we would like to explain the name change briefly, and then we will answer your open questions immediately.
From July 24 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 24 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.

CertCenter would like to invite you to the CloudFest 2018. This event takes place at the cozy Europa-Park in Rust, Germany, March 10th-16th 2018, with more than 6,500 participants and 150 exhibitors from all over the world.
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.
As a small thank you, we have thought about taking over the costs for exactly 7,777 GlobalSign AlphaSSL wildcard certificates (CA’s MSRP $149 each) for our customers (while stocks last, 1 certificate per customer).
