Please Note:  On July 22nd, 2010 GeoTrust upgraded its root hierachy to 2048bit RSA Keys to enhance the security of all SSL products. As a part of this upgrade, all newly issued certificates now require the installation of the new GeoTrust Intermediate CA along with your SSL certificate. The new Intermediate CA MUST be installed in order for your SSL certificate to be fully trusted in all browsers.

You MUST install the below Intermediate CA file on your server for your SSL certificate to be fully supported in all web browsers.

For your convenience we have pre-packaged the Intermediate CA in a single file for a quick and easy install on to your web server. Please download the CA file version for your web server type.

Did You Know?

The image on the left represents where the Intermediate CA fits in the certificate chain.

Note: The chain may display differently depending on the type of web browser used to view a secure web page. As per the left image, older web browsers will show all the CA's in the chain, newer web browsers will display a shorter chain. The GeoTrust Global CA sitting at the top of the chain by default is widely distributed into all common web browsers and therefore will not require installation.
