Change to One Year Validity for Trusted TLS/SSL from QuoVadis

Cause

Description

QuoVadis will change to 397 day maximum validity for public TLS/SSL certificates on August 27, 2020 at 23:59 UTC.  

 

Why is the change being made?

Changes in browser requirements have reduced the allowed maximum validity for public TLS/SSL.

 

How does this affect me?

After the change, the new policies will be automatically available in customer accounts.

•             This change affects all CAs industry-wide.  It applies to Business SSL (OV), EV, PKIoverheid TLS/SSL, and Qualified Web Authentication certificates.

•             Two year certificates issued before the August 27 changeover will continue to work.

•             This change does not affect other certificate types including code signing, document signing, client, S/MIME certificates, or private TLS/SSL.
