Submit a request to revoke a Code Signing/EV Code Signing certificate

Before DigiCert can revoke the certificate, an account administrator may need to approve the revocation request.


A revoked certificate is invalid. You cannot restore a revoked certificate.

Before you begin

Submit a request to revoke a code signing/EV code signing certificate.

  1. In your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Certificates >; Orders.

  2. On the Orders page, select the order number for the code signing certificate you want to revoke.

  3. On the certificate's Order details page, on the Order actions menu, select Revoke all certificates.

  4.  On the Request to Revoke Certificate page, in the Why do you want to revoke this certificate dropdown, select the reason you are revoking the certificates in the order:

    • Key compromise – My certificate's private key was lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised.

      You will also need to provide proof of the compromised key. This will revoke all certificates associated with the compromised key.

    • Cessation of operation – I no longer use or control the domain or email address associated with the certificate or no longer use the certificate.

    • Affiliation change – The name or any other information regarding my organization changed.

    • Superseded – I have requested a new certificate to replace this one.

    • Unspecified - None of the reasons above apply.

  5. In the Comment to admin box, provide additional information to the approving admin.

  6. When ready, select Request revocation.

What's next

DigiCert will revoke the certificate only after a CertCentral account administrator approves your revocation request.
