New location for API Keys and ACME Directory URLs

With more and more organizations working to automate SSL/TLS certificate deployment, we added a new left main menu optionAutomationand placed the two primary tools for automating certificate deployment under the new menu option: API Keys and ACME Directory URLs.

Previously, you accessed these features from the Account Access page. Now, we've conveniently added them to the left main menu (in the main menu, click Automation > API Keys and Automation > ACME Directory URLs).

Note: Only account administrators and managers can see the Automation menu options in their left main menu.

new

We added two new statuses to the Organizations and Organization details pages: validation expires soon, and validation expired. These new statuses make it easier to proactively track your organization validations and make sure they stay up to date.

Now, when you visit the Organizations page (in the sidebar menu click Certificates > Organizations), you can quickly identify organizations with validation that is expiring soon or has already expired. For more details about the expiring or expired organization validation, click the organization name.

fix

We fixed a bug where some accounts were unable to submit organizations for EV CS – Code Signing Organization Extended Validation. The affected accounts only contained EV Code Signing and Code Signing products.

As part of the fix, we split up the EV and EV CS verified contact options. Now, when submitting an organization for EV CS – Code Signing Organization Extended Validation, you can submit the organization's verified contact for EV CS order approvals only. Similarly, when submitting an organization for EV – Extended Organization Validation (EV), you can submit the organization's verified contact for EV SSL certificate order approvals only.

Note: For EV code signing certificate orders, organizations and the organization's verified contacts need to be pre-validated. For more information about organization pre-validation, see our Submit an organization for pre-validation instructions.

enhancement

In Discovery, we updated the Certificates page, adding a new action—Replace certificate—to the Actions dropdown. Now, from the Certificates page, you can replace any certificate with a DigiCert certificate regardless of issuing CA.

(In the sidebar menu, click Discovery > View Results. On the Certificates page, locate the Actions dropdown for the certificate you want to replace. Click Actions > Replace certificate.)

enhancement

In Discovery, we updated the Certificates by rating widget on the Discovery dashboard, making it easier to see the security ratings for your public SSL/TLS certificates (in the sidebar menu, click Discovery > Discovery Dashboard).

As part of the update, we renamed the widget: Certificates analyzed by security rating. Then, we split the chart on the widget into two charts: Public and Others. Now, you can use the Public | Others toggle switch on the widget to select the chart you want to see.

The Certificates analyzed by security rating - Public chart displays the ratings for your public SSL/TLS certificates only. The Certificates analyzed by security rating - Other chart displays the rating for all your other SSL/TLS certificates (e.g., private SSL certificates).

enhancement

In Discovery, we updated the Endpoints and Server details pages making it easier to see the correlation between the IP address and the hostname/FQDN scan it resulted from.

Now, when you configure a scan for a hostname/FQDN, and the scan's endpoint results return IP addresses, we include the hostname/FQDN from the scan with the IP address.

Update note: The hostname update is available in the latest sensor version – 3.7.10. After the sensors updates are completed, rerun scans to see the hostname/IP address correlation on your scan results.

We've added a new tool to our CertCentral portfolio—Discovery—that provides real-time analysis of your entire SSL/TLS certificate landscape.

Designed to quickly find all your internal and public facing SSL/TLS certificates regardless of the issuing Certificate Authority (CA), Discovery identifies problems in certificate configurations and implementations along with certificate-related vulnerabilities or problems in your endpoint configurations.

Note: Discovery uses sensors to scan your network. Sensors are small software applications that you install in strategic locations. Each scan is linked to a sensor.

Scans are centrally configured and managed from inside your CertCentral account. Scan results are displayed in an intuitive and interactive dashboard inside CertCentral. Configure scans to run once or multiple times on a set schedule.

enhancement

We've updated the CertCentral SAML Federation Settings, enabling you to keep your Federation Name from appearing in the list of IdPs on the SAML Single Sign-On IdP Selection and SAML certificate requests IdP Selection pages.

Now, on the Federation Settings page, under Your IDP's Metadata, we added the Include Federation Name option. If you want to keep your Federation Name from appearing in the list of IdPs on the IdP Selection page, uncheck Add my Federation Name to the list of IdPs.

compliance

Public SSL certificates can no longer secure domain names with underscores ("_"). All previously issued certificates with underscores in domain names must expire prior to this date.

Note: The preferred underscore solution is to rename the hostnames (FQDNs) that contain underscores and replace the certificates. However, for those situations where renaming is not possible, you can use private certificates and, in some cases, you can use a wildcard certificate that secures the entire domain.

For more details, see Retiring Underscores in Domain Names.

enhancement

We enhanced our RapidSSL DV certificate offerings enabling you to include a second, very specific domain, in these single domain certificates.

  • RapidSSL Standard DV
    By default now, when ordering a RapidSSL Standard DV Certificate, you get both versions of the common name in the certificate – [your-domain].com and www.[your-domain].com.
    After entering the common name, make sure the Include both www.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com in the certificate box is checked.
    Previously, you had to order separate certificates for [your-domain].com and www.[your-domain].com.
  • RapidSSL Wildcard DV
    By default now, when ordering a RapidSSL Wildcard DV Certificate, you get the wildcard domain and the base domain in the certificate – *.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com.
    After entering the common name, make sure the Include both *.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com in the certificate box is checked.
    Previously, you had to order separate certificates for *.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com.

See the CertCentral: DV Certificate Enrollment Guide.

We enhanced the RapidSSL certificate endpoints to include the dns_names parameter, enabling you to include a second, very specific domain, in these single domain certificates.

  • RapidSSL Standard DV
    When ordering a RapidSSL Standard DV Certificate, you may include both version of your domain in the certificate — [your-domain].com and www.[your-domain].com.
    "common_name": "[your-domain].com",
    "dns_names": ["www.[your-domain].com"],

    Previously, you had to order separate certificates for [your-domain].com and www.[your-domain].com.
  • RapidSSL Wildcard DV
    When ordering a RapidSSL Wildcard DV Certificate, you may include the base domain in the certificate — *.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com).
