Need to renew your DigiCert Code Signing certificate? Follow the steps below to renew your certificate.
If a CSR is required, best practice is 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 your CertCentral account.
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.
A certificate doesn't appear on the Expiring Certificates page until 90 days before it 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 your CertCentral account.
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.
