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

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

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.

  • To learn how to install a sensor and start scanning your SSL/TLS certificate landscape, see Discovery user guide.
  • To continue to use Sensor scan after the trial period is over, please contact your account manager or our Support team.

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:

  • Date range
  • Division
  • User
  • IP Address
  • Actions
    (e.g., void sensor, delete scan, etc.)

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.

See CertCentral language preferences.

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'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.
