Maximum SSL-lifetime of 2 years
08 April 2017: On March 17, 2017 the CAB-Forum decided to cap the allowed lifetime for SSL certificates to a maximum of 2 years (https://cabforum.org/2017/03/17/ballot-193-825-day-certificate-lifetimes/). As of March 01, 2018 Certificate Authorities (CA) will not be allowed to issue publicly trusted SSL certificates with a validity period of more than 2 years anymore. This measure aims at increasing the quality of certificates, given the fact that the certificate holder is going to be verified more frequently. The CA’s are now in process of applying this decision. As a consequence, GlobalProtec’s SSL offer is also being reduced to maximum validity periods of 2 years.
