Change to SSL/TLS validity period by 01.09.2020
08 august 2020: Important change concerning validity of SSL/TLS certificates from 1 September 2020. The validity period for SSL/TLS certificates that are issued after 1 September 2020 cannot exceed a maximum of one year. From 20 August 2020, only SSL/TLS certificates with a one-year validity period will be available. This change means that SSL certificates will now need to be renewed at least once a year.
Two-year SSL certificates issued before 1. September 2020 will remain valid. The validity of email and code signing certificates will not be affected and remains unchanged.
