CT Log monitoring

We are happy to announce that Secure Site Pro certificates now come with access to a CT Log monitoring service. CT Log monitoring allows you to monitor the public CT logs for SSL/TLS certificates issued for the domains on your Secure Site Pro certificate order, in real time.

CT Log monitoring is a cloud service so there is nothing to install or manage. After we've issued your Secure Site Pro certificate and turned CT Log monitoring on for the order, you can start using the service immediately to monitor the domains on the certificate order.

The CT Log monitoring benefit for Secure Site Pro certificates is retroactive. To access your CT Log monitoring for your issued and active Secure Site Pro certificate order, contact your account manager or our support team.

CT Log monitoring helps you:

  • Gain visibility of the SSL/TLS certificates issued for your domains with global monitoring and tracking against the public CT logs.
  • Cut down on time and effort needed to monitor the logs by providing automated checks for DigiCert and non-DigiCert issued certificates.
  • Ensure every certificate issued for your domains is trusted while gaining full oversight of which certificate authority issued each certificate.

The service pulls the discovered SSL/TLS certificates into your CertCentral account, where you can view details about the certificates to quickly identify any misissued certificates for your domains. You can also download copies of the non-DigiCert certificates right from your CertCentral account.

Email notifications

After you've enabled CT Log monitoring for a Secure Site Pro certificate order, you'll receive two types of email notifications: Daily CT log digest and if needed, Urgent notifications. Email notifications are sent to account admins and allow them to check the CT logs for their domains without signing in to their CertCentral account every day.

  • Daily CT log digest
    Scheduled to occur once a day, this digest includes a daily rundown of new DigiCert issued SSL/TLS certificates found in public CT logs. The daily digest is only sent if new DigiCert issued certificates are discovered.
  • Urgent CT log notification
    This urgent notification is sent within minutes any time a non-DigiCert SSL/TLS certificate is issued for a domain on the Secure Site Pro certificate order.
