Elimination of SSL lifetimes > 3 years
16 March 2015: As of April 01, 2015 official Certificate Providers will no longer issue SSL certificates with lifetimes of more than 3 years. This new guideline was decided by the “Certificate Authority/Browser (CA/B) Forum”, which is the governing body of the SSL industry. The measure aims at increasing SSL/TLS security, so all SHA-1 signed certificates will expire on April 1, 2019 latest. Get your 4-years or 5-years SSL certificate this month!
