News: SSL Certificate Mandated Change

Published: 07/15/2020





Starting Wednesday, August 19, 2020, CFDynamics will no longer be able to offer two-year public TLS certificates due to an industry-wide requirement set by Apple and Google, stating that any two-year TLS certificate issued after August 30, 2020 will be distrusted in their browsers.


Any two-year TLS certificate issued before 12:00am UTC on August 19, 2020 will be valid for two-years (up to 825 days). Beginning August 19, 2020, Sectigo will only be issuing one-year (up to 398 days) TLS certificates.


This only applies to public TLS certificates. Private-root and other types of certificates (e.g. Code Signing Certificates, S/MIME certificates, etc.) will be unaffected and will have the same maximum validity that they have today.


CFDynamics will be offering Subscription SSL bundles through Sectigo for our customers who purchase certificates through our websites. See additional information below on Subscription SSL offers.


Contact us if you have any questions about how these changes may impact your business.


Thank you,




Subscription SSL


CFDynamics is happy to announce Subscription SSL packages that will offer bundles of maximum duration certificates (398 days), allowing a customer to obtain continuous certificate coverage for up to five years.

Sectigo Subscription SSL bundles are currently offered for single, multi-domain and wildcard DV and OV TLS/SSL certificates.

Retain revenue from renewing multi-year certificates and benefit from offering both new and one-year customers Subscription SSL.

To meet industry regulations, the certificate will initially be issued with a 398-day validity period. Sectigo can send you or your customers reminders when the time comes via email or push notifications. As with all Sectigo certificates, your customers can reissue their certificates at any time and as many times as they like. No more lost days or weeks on trying to time a new purchase and re-submission.
