Discovery now available in all CertCentral accounts
We are happy to announce that all existing CertCentral accounts now include Discovery, our newest and most robust certificate discovery tool.
Note: For those who were using Certificate Inspector, Discovery replaces our long time DigiCert tool, Certificate Inspector.
By default, Discovery includes Cloud scan and a Sensor scan trial with a 100-certificate limit.
Cloud scan uses a cloud-based sensor, so there is nothing to install or manage. You can start scanning immediately to find all your public facing SSL/TLS certificates regardless of issuing Certificate Authority (CA). Cloud-scan runs once every 24 hours.
Sensor scan is our most robust version of Discovery. It uses sensors to scan your network to quickly find all your internal and public facing SSL/TLS certificates regardless of the issuing Certificate Authority (CA). Discovery also identifies problems in certificate configurations and implementations along with certificate-related vulnerabilities or problems in your endpoint configurations.
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.
Discovery audit logs
Discovery has added a new feature—Discovery Audit Logs—allowing you to track Discovery-related activities in your CertCentral account. These audit logs provide insight into user activity enabling you to see areas where training may be required, reconstruct events to troubleshoot problems, detect misuse, and discover problem areas.
To make it easier to sort through the information in the Discover audit logs, we've include several filters:
To access the Discovery Audit Log, in your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Account > Audit Logs. On the Audit Logs page, click Discovery Audit Logs.
Discovery language support
As we work to globalize our product offerings and make our websites, platforms, and documentation more accessible, we are happy to announce that we've added language support to Discovery in CertCentral.
Now, when configuring your language preference in CertCentral, Discovery is included in the configuration.

Bug fix: DV certificate orders did not honor Submit base domains for validation account setting
We fixed a bug in the DV certificate domain control validation (DCV) process where DV certificate orders did not adhere to the Submit base domains for validation account setting.
Note: For DV certificate orders, you were required to validate the domain exactly as named in the order.
Now, DV certificate orders honor the Submit base domains for validation account setting, allowing you to validate your subdomains at the base domain level on your DV certificate orders.
To view the Domain Validation Scope settings in your account, go to Settings > Preferences. On the Division preferences page, expand +Advanced Settings. The Domain Validation Scope settings are in the Domain Control Validation (DCV) section.
We fixed a bug where new organizations added during the SSL/TLS certificate request process weren't listed on the Organizations page (in the sidebar menu, click Certificates > Organizations).
With this fix, new organizations added during the SSL/TLS certificate request process will now be automatically listed on the Organizations page in your account.
Retroactive fix: All Organizations will be listed
The fix for this bug is retroactive too. If you've enabled users to add new organizations during the request process, the next time you go to the Organizations page in your account, these organizations will be added to the list.
Note: This bug didn't affect your ability to request additional SSL/TLS certificates for these organizations, as they appeared in the list of existing organizations on the certificate request forms where you could add them to the certificate. This bug also didn't affect organizations added from the New Organizations page (on the Organizations page, click New Organization).
We improved the CertCentral audit logs, making it easier to track API key creations. Now, the audit logs will contain information about who created the API key, when it was created, name of API, etc.
(To access the audit logs in your account, in the sidebar menu, click Account > Audit Logs.)
