Logging Public SSL/TLS Certificates in to Public CT Logs

As of February 1, 2018, DigiCert logs all newly issued public SSL/TLS certificates in to public Certificate Transparency (CT) logs by default. This does not affect any OV certificates issued before February 1, 2018.

Note: CT logging has been required for EV SSL Certificates since 2015.

DigiCert advocates CT logging because:

  • It improves security across the web by providing early detection of misissued certificates.
  • It checks the integrity of Certificate Authority (CA) practices.
  • Most importantly, it provides you with a way to monitor all certificates issued for their domains, adding another layer of protection for your domains and customers.
