A New Type of Certificate

The use of non-FQDN certificates is being deprecated by November 1, 2015, and existing certificates containing non-FQDN names will be revoked by all public CAs by October 1, 2016. Per the CA/Browser Forum’s latest Baseline Requirements, publicly trusted SSL certificates that use non-registered domains represent security vulnerabilities in the SSL trust chain.

Entrust provides straightforward options to either allow you to continue with your non-registered names or switch to a registered name. Whichever path you choose, Entrust is ready.

What Are Your FQDN Certificate Options?

Switch to FQDNs, Keep Public SSL Certificates

Switch to fully qualified domain names (FQDNs) and continue to use public SSL certificates. Root certificate trust is automatically delivered by the operating system or the browser without your IT involvement. Properly changing domain names, however, could take an extended period of time — or even break existing integrations — as they may be hard-coded into existing applications.

Switch to Entrust Private SSL Certificates

Migration to Entrust Private SSL Certificates enables the continued use of non-registered domain names. This new type of privately trusted certificate provides the same key sizes, signing algorithms, validity periods and CA protection as Entrust’s proven publicly trusted SSL certificates — all issued via a private shared CA that ensures no two names are alike.

Use In-House, Self-Signed Certificates

Organizations who require total control may choose to use a dedicated privately trusted CA to deploy non-public SSL certificates for internal security. Offload the burden of managing your own CA by implementing a managed PKI from Entrust. This hosted approach offers the same proven certificates as an in-house PKI without added expense or need to employ an expert staff.
