The CA/Browser Forum has implemented a change in Certification Authorities’ policy requirements, reducing the maximum lifetime for all TLS/SSL certificates to 825 days, which is just over 27 months. This is a reduction from the existing maximum term of 39 months, meaning the maximum validity for an SSL certificate is now two years, and not three.
This is an industry-wide directive which affects all certificate authorities. In accordance with the CA/Browser Forum Baseline Requirements, effective 1 March 2018, Certificate Authorities (CAs) will no longer be able to issue SSL Certificates with a validity period longer than 27-months.
As a result, ProWeb will adopt these new lifetime requirements effective 1 March 2018 and three-year certificates will be removed as available options from our website.
