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.
