Need to renew your DigiCert Code Signing certificate? Follow the steps below to renew your certificate.
If a CSR is required, best practices are to generate a new CSR when renewing your code signing certificate.
EV code signing
If you are installing the certificate on an HSM, a CSR is required.
Sign in to CertCentral (or your DigiCert management console).
Fill out the certificate renewal order form. Note that after you submit the renewal order, DigiCert will perform a quick cross-check verification. If your organization’s information was changed in the CSR, you may need to provide new documentation to verify the changes.
In the sidebar menu, click Certificates > Expiring Certificates. On the Expiring Certificates page, next to the certificate that needs to be renewed, click Renew Now. Note that a certificate does not appear on the Expiring Certificates page until 90 days before it expires.
DigiCert Management Console
On the My Orders tab, click the '+' icon next to the certificate you want to renew and then click Renew. Note that the renew option is not available until 90 days before the certificate expires.
Once approved, we send an email to the certificate contact with certificate installation instructions.
If you submitted a CSR, we send the renewed certificate to the certificate contact in an email. You can also download the renewed certificate in from your account (CertCentral or DigiCert Management Console).
Use the instructions in the email to install and configure the new certificate. If you submitted a CSR, on your server or HSM, install the new certificate.
