CTT is no longer reselling Symantec Secure Site Pro SSL Certificate with 3 year validity and works in progress for the replacement of SSL hierarchy.
In order to enhance the security of SSL/TLS Certificates, it is approved by Ballot 193 from the CA/Browser Forum to adjust all OV and DV SSL Certificates Lifetime from the maximum validity period of 39 months (3 years + 3 months) to maximum 825 days (approx. 27 months, ie. 2 years + 3 months), starting from 1st March 2018. (For further details please refer to: https://www.digicert.com/shortening-validity-periods-for-ov-dv-certificates/)
Based on the above announcement, CTT eSignTrust will no longer provide Symantec Secure Site Pro SSL Certificates with 3 year validity as of 1st March 2018. The arrangement is made as follows:
1. Existing 3 year certificates issued between 1st December 2017 to 28th February 2018 will still be valid until the certificate expiry date without impact.
2. As for the SSL Certificates issued before 30th November 2017, due to the change of vendor’s SSL hierarchy, we are in contact with the vendor to arrange a free replacement of certificates for existing users. (For more information on the vendor's change of its SSL hierarchy, please refer to: https://knowledge.symantec.com/support/mpki-for-ssl-support/index?page=content&actp=CROSSLINK&id=INFO4655)
3. CTT eSignTrust maintains to provide Symantec/Symantec EV SSL Certificates with 1 and 2 year validity, and Symantec Code Signer Certificates of 1/2/3 year validity (all Symantec Code Signer Certificates will not be affected by the above announcement).
