NIST announced that just certificates with 2048-bit root length can guarantee security and provide strong protection for websites. Every certificate Comodo offers 2048-bit root key.
The Institute stated that 1024-bit certificates will soon become vulnerable. They recommend that key lengths be upgraded to 2048-bit strength by 2010. Any certificate issued with a term length past 2010 should be 2048‑bit to be considered secure. Consumers must remember that not every company offer it now.
Leading cryptography organizations, including NIST, have issued recommendations for entities to upgrade to longer key lengths. Based on these recommendations, entities wishing to keep secure for the next several years need to start using 2048-bit certificates. This is extremely important for those who purchase multi-year SSL certificates.
Sectigo, formerly known as Comodo CA, is entering the next phase of its transition: it’s replacing Comodo CA roots with USERTrust roots on January 14, 2019. Why it happens and what it will mean to Sectigo customers?
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a 99-article regulation meant to protect the private data of Europeans in IT systems. Announced in 2016, covers a broad variety of topics and will go into effect as a requirement on May 25, 2018. GDPR applies to any company doing business in Europe even if it is located elsewhere.
In November this year we wrote about the need to replace SSL certificates issued by Symantec Group. Find out the dates when you need to re-issue your certificates.
