Updates to OV and EV TLS certificate profiles

As we work to align our DV, OV, and EV TLS certificate profiles, we are making a minor change to our OV and EV TLS certificate profiles. Starting January 25, 2022, we will set the Basic Constraints extension to noncritical in our OV and EV TLS certificate profiles.

Note: DV TLS certificates are already issued with the Basic Constraints extension set to noncritical.

What do I need to do?

No action is required on your part. You shouldn't notice any difference in your certificate issuance process.

However, if your TLS certificate process requires the Basic Constraints extension to bet set to critical, contact your account manager or DigiCert Support immediately.

Industry changes to file-based DCV (HTTP Practical Demonstration, file auth, file, HTTP token, and HTTP auth)

To comply with new industry standards for the file-based domain control validation (DCV) method, you can only use the file-based DCV to demonstrate control over fully qualified domain names (FQDNs), exactly as named.

To learn more about the industry change, see Domain validation policy changes in 2021.

How does this affect me?

As of November 16, 2021, you must use one of the other supported DCV methods, such as Email, DNS TXT, and CNAME, to:

  • Validate wildcard domains (*.example.com)
  • To include subdomains in the domain validation when validating the higher-level domain. For example, if you want to cover www.example.com, when you validate the higher-level domain, example.com.
  • Prevalidate entire domains and subdomains.

CertCentral: Pending certificate requests and domain prevalidation using file-based DCV

Pending certificate request

If you have a pending certificate request with incomplete file-based DCV checks, you may need to switch DCV methods* or use the file-based DCV method to demonstrate control over every fully qualified domain name, exactly as named, on the request.

*Note: For certificate requests with incomplete file-based DCV checks for wildcard domains, you must use a different DCV method.

To learn more about the supported DCV methods for DV, OV, and EV certificate requests:

Domain prevalidation

If you plan to use the file-based DCV method to prevalidate an entire domain or entire subdomain, you must use a different DCV method.

To learn more about the supported DCV methods for domain prevalidation, see Supported domain control validation (DCV) methods for domain prevalidation.

CertCentral Services API

If you use the CertCentral Services API to order certificates or submit domains for prevalidation using file-based DCV (http-token), this change may affect your API integrations. To learn more, visit File-based domain control validation (http-token).

CertCentral Services API: Improved domains array in OV/EV order response

To make it easier to see how the Services API groups the domains on your OV/EV TLS certificate orders for validation, we added a new response parameter to the endpoints for submitting certificate order requests: domains[].dns_name.*

The dns_name parameter returns the common name or SAN of the domain on the order. To prove you control this domain, you must have an active validation for the domain associated with the domains[].name and domains[].id key/value pairs.

API de services CertCentral : Ajout de jetons DCV pour les nouveaux domaines dans les données de réponses aux commandes de certificats OV et EV

Nous avons mis à jour les points de terminaison permettant la commande de certificats SSL EV et OV publics afin de renvoyer les jetons de requête de validation de contrôle de domaine (DCV) concernant les nouveaux domaines de la commande.

Désormais, lorsque vous demandez un certificat OV ou EV, vous n'avez plus besoin d'émettre des requêtes distinctes pour obtenir les jetons de requête DCV des nouveaux domaines de la commande. À la place, vous pourrez recevoir les jetons directement dans les données de réponse à la requête.

Exemple de données de réponse :

Remarque : L’objet dcv_token n’est pas renvoyé pour les domaines qui seront validés de façon intégrée à un autre domaine de la commande, pour ceux qui existent déjà sur le compte, ni pour les sous-domaines de domaines principaux existants.

Cette mise à jour est valable pour les points de terminaison suivants :
