Azure Key Vault - discovery

New options to enable key vault discovery when adding or editing an Azure Key Vault connector in Trust Lifecycle Manager. This feature allows users to discover certificates in one or more key vaults associated with the connector. When enabled, users can:

  • Discover all valid and expired certificates in key vaults.

  • Update status of deleted and recovered certificates.

Azure Key Vault - remove

New option in the Inventory view to remove certificate from a key vault. Administrators can access this option from the actions (three dots) menu for certificates present in a key vault.

Let's Encrypt - revoke certificate

Administrators can now revoke certificates issued via Let's Encrypt CA connectors. Certificates can be revoked via:

  • The Trust Lifecycle Manager Inventory view.

  • A third-party ACME client.

Enhancements

Profile wizard - certificate preview

Ability to preview the content of a certificate as you work though the profile wizard steps, including the entire CA hierarchy that will be used to sign the certificate, for certificate profiles that use issuing CAs hosted in the DigiCert® CA Manager application.

EST authentication

New EST authentication options available for all three "Generic" certificate templates (Generic Device, Generic Private Server, and Generic User):

Global enrollment code

Extended the enrollment code authentication method to optionally allow the configuration of a global enrollment code that can be used to authenticate all incoming EST client requests.

Certificate-based authentication

Added support for certificate-based client authentication via a new authentication method called TLS Certificate Auth. This option requires that you first upload the certificates of CAs trusted to issue client authentication certificates, via the Settings > My root certificates page. To authenticate, EST clients must present a certificate signed by one of these trusted CAs.

For more information, see Configure and test EST.

DigiCert Trust Assistant release v1.1.5

New DigiCert Trust Assistant release with the following updates.

Client enhancements:

  • Import/Export of PKCS#12 / PKCS#7 / GLCK certificate with CA(s) on Windows CAPI will import CA chain certificates to respective trusted root and intermediate CA stores in CAPI with various configurable options (Windows only).

  • Functionality to rerun the post-processing scripts associated with a certificate/profile in case the scripts fail to execute at the time of certificate enrollment/renewal.

  • Added new system-level notifications (via a notification message within the client) to inform users about failed post-processing scripts, with enhanced error messaging about the script failures in the DigiCert Trust Assistant user interface and logs.

  • Enhanced software auto update flow to reduce the number of alerts in case of network communication failures.

Outlook post-processing script — multiple accounts:

  • Enhanced the Outlook system post-processing script to support Outlook instances with more than one configured email account, based on email matching from the certificate SubjectDN:email and/or SAN rfc822Name fields.

Mixed key types for CA and end-entity certificates:

  • DigiCert Trust Assistant can now handle certificate issuance/renewal flows with the below CA/end-entity key type combinations, for DigiCert Trust Assistant profiles configured with an:

    • RSA CA and end-entity certificates with key types of RSA, RSAPSS or ECDSA.

    • ECDSA CA and end-entity certificates with key types of RSA or ECDSA.

Non-supported browsers:

  • If a DigiCert Trust Assistant-based enrollment or renewal is attempted on a browser that is not officially supported by DigiCert, a warning message will be shown on the enrollment/renewal page. The flow will not be blocked, just a warning message.

Certificate delivery format:

  • When configuring a DigiCert Trust Assistant non-escrow profile from any of the Public S/MIME templates, the default certificate delivery format will now be PKCS#7.

  • For profiles configured with delivery of the certificate with the CA chain, DigiCert Trust Assistant will automatically install the root/intermediate CA certificates into the respective Windows stores in CAPI.

Fixes

Public S/MIME profile creation

Resolved issue with not being able to create certificate profiles from the Public S/MIME templates.

CertCentral connector

Addressed a problem where users were unable to add a new CertCentral connector using username and password credentials. This update restores the functionality, allowing for seamless CertCentral connector configurations.

Tomcat automation failing

Resolved certificate lifecycle automation issue with Apache Tomcat on Windows.

March 20, 2024

DigiCert® ONE version: 1.7083.4 | Trust Lifecycle Manager: 1.2674.0

New

Sensor release v3.9.0

New DigiCert sensor release with the following updates:

  • Refactored sensor-to-Trust Lifecycle Manager communication from SOAP to REST.

  • Stability fixes.

Enhancements

Enhanced automation actions

Optimized certificate lifecycle workflow actions on the Inventory page:

  • Switch action allows switching a deployed certificate to any supported CA (previously "Switch to DigiCert").

  • Request a certificate action allows users to issue a new certificate from the same CA.

  • Renew/Reissue actions remain unchanged for CAs that support them.

Streamlined SAML web enrollment flow

Streamlined the SAML-based web enrollment flows to bypass the “Create enrollment” step if no user input is required and the “Cloud Key Escrow” option is disabled in the profile. This streamlined SAML enrollment flow only presents a single page ("Install certificate").

If the “Cloud Key Escrow” option is enabled in the profile (e.g. for S/MIME use-cases) we will continue to show an intermediate page with a warning to the user alerting about the private key being escrowed in the cloud, hence not bypassing this page. We renamed this page from "Create enrollment" to "Enrollment request" and the button from "Create" to "Submit".

"Enrollment status change" email template for enrollment code flows

Profiles configured with the Enrollment code authentication method now have access to an additional email template that can be enabled in the Email configuration and notifications section of the profile to notify end users when their enrollment status changes from "created" to "rejected", "expired", or "redeemed". We renamed this notification type from "Enrollment status is either rejected or expired" to Enrollment status change (rejected, expired, redeemed).

Fixes

Inventory page issue due to deleted profiles

Resolved issue with the Inventory page not loading properly when encountering certificate profiles that had been deleted.

Certificate delivery format for Public S/MIME (via CertCentral) API requests

Resolved issue with incorrect certificate delivery format for profiles configured from the Public S/MIME Secure Email (via CertCentral) template using the "REST API" enrollment method and with the “Cloud Key Escrow” option disabled (i.e. non-escrow).

SCEP URL with additional "/" character

Resolved issue with the SCEP service no longer accepting SCEP requests containing a “/” character at the end of the "pkiclient.exe" resource inside the URL (e.g. "https://one.digicert.com/mpki/api/v1/scep/<profile-guid>/cgi-bin/pkiclient.exe/?operation=GetCACert").

Sensor list not being sent to agent

Resolved issue with sensor list not getting updated to agents when a sensor is added or removed. This fix ensures that proxied agents have the latest sensor list available for failover scenarios.

Unable to change "start now" scan to scheduled

Resolved issue with being unable to edit a "start now" network scan to use the "schedule for later" option instead.

March 13, 2024

DigiCert® ONE version: 1.7083.2 | Trust Lifecycle Manager: 1.2639.0

Enhancements

Multiple CertCentral connectors

Added support for more than one CertCentral CA connector:

  • Connect to multiple CertCentral accounts across US and EU regions.

  • For each connector, map the CertCentral divisions for imported certificates to respective business units in Trust Lifecycle Manager.

  • When creating certificate profiles from a CertCentral CA connector, set the CertCentral division to use to issue new certificates from each profile.

For more information, see Link to DigiCert CertCentral.

Fixes

Updated the DigiCert Autoenrollment Server to version 2.24.2.0 with the following enhancements:

  • Custom private extensions that can be used to dynamically retrieve values from Active Directory based on the profile configuration.

  • New Subject Distinguished Name (DN) fields:

    • Title

    • Given name

    • Surname

    • DN qualifier

For more information, see the DigiCert Autoenrollment Server guide.

Upload PKCS12 certificates

Enhanced the REST API certificate-import endpoint and the DigiCert Import Tool (available from your DigiCert representative upon request) to support uploading end-entity escrowed certificates (PKCS#12 files with their passwords) into a specified business unit, with or without their issuing CA being previously loaded and configured into your account.

Uploaded certificates get automatically bound to one of the below seat types based on whether the issuing CA is available in your account or not:

  • Imported seats: For certificates (whether escrowed or not) with their associated issuing CAs available in your account. Authorized administrators can manage lifecycle operations for these certificates in Trust Lifecycle Manager (for example, revoke, suspend/resume, or recover). Available management actions depend on the type of certificate uploaded.

  • Discovery seats: For certificates without their associated issuing CAs available in you account. Authorized administrators with the appropriate Key Recovery role can download and recover this type of certificate in Trust Lifecycle Manager.

For more information, see Import externally issued certificates using the API.

eIDAS Natural Person - additional Subject DN fields

Added support for the Organization Identifier and Organization Unit Subject Distinguished Name (DN) fields to the following two eIDAS Natural Person certificate templates:

  • eIDAS Electronic Signature Certificate (Natural Person with QSCD)

  • eIDAS Electronic Signature Certificate (Natural Person)

Let op

Contact your administrator if these certificate templates are not available in your account and you need access to them.

Certificate delivery format profile enhancement

For profiles configured to use a self-signed issuing CA, we enhanced the Additional options: Certificate delivery format step in the profile configuration wizard to dynamically hide the Include CA chain with Root CA and Include CA chain without Root CA PKCS#7 options.

Cause and solution for agent automation errors

Enhanced error messaging to show errors and recommended solutions to help users quickly remediate and retry issues with certificate lifecycle automations managed via DigiCert agents.

Support for CertCentral duplicate certificates

Added support for issuing duplicate certificates from CertCentral during automation events, by selecting the new "get duplicate certificate" option when scheduling the automation. If selected, the request is passed on to CertCentral and the CA there will issue a duplicate if a matching certificate is found. If no match is found, a new order gets created instead.

This feature must be enabled on a per-account basis and is available for certificate profiles configured with the following enrollment methods:

  • Admin web request

  • DigiCert agent

  • DigiCert sensor

  • 3rd-party ACME client

Let op

To issue a duplicate certificate from an existing CertCentral order, make sure all these conditions are met:

  • Order is active, already had a certificate issued, and has enough remaining validity to fulfill the request.

  • Selected certificate profile is for the same product and organization, and organization is currently validated.

  • Requested common name matches the order, and any requested SANs match or are a subset of the order.

  • None of the requested domains include wildcards.

Starting November 1, 2023, at 18:00 MDT (November 2, 2023, at 00:00 UTC), we will require all DigiCert ONE accounts to use two-factor authentication (2FA).

You will use both your credentials and a one-time password to access your account. When you log in to your DigiCert ONE account on November 1, you will be prompted to set up two-factor authentication. If you have already enabled two-factor authentication in Account Manager before this date, no further action is necessary.

How to enable two-factor authentication in Account Manager.

Opmerking

If you use single sign-on (SSO) to access your DigiCert ONE account, the new two-factor authentication requirement does not affect you. However, the requirement will activate if you modify your SSO settings.

New

Optional grace period for certificate renewal

New Grace period option for the “Renewal options” section that allows the addition of the days before expiration to the renewed certificates. If not selected, the renewed certificate takes a strict validity period based on the “Certificate expired in” value.

For example, for a profile configured with the grace period, if renewing a 365-day certificate 20 days before its expiration, the renewed certificate will have a validity period of 385 days. If the option was disabled, the renewed certificate only has a validity period of 365 days.

Opmerking

This feature is enabled for profiles making use of Issuing CAs hosted by DigiCert® CA Manager, not external CAs such Microsoft CA, CertCentral or AWS CA.

Bulk deployment for agents

Ability to create a deployable package with an encrypted API-KEY that can then be distributed using any available tools like GPO push, Ansible, PS Exec, etc. and triggered such that the agent provisions to the account and is ready for automation.

Public S/MIME template for Email Gateway providers using CMP

This new certificate template named Public S/MIME Secure Email using CMP (via CertCentral) allows issuance of Public S/MIME sponsor-validated certificates via CertCentral using the Certificate Management Protocol (CMP), is mainly consumed by our Email Gateway service providers.

The template is tagged as “limited”, meaning that a is not available for all accounts. If required, contact an administrator with appropriate access to assign templates to accounts.

Enhancements

CertCentral Public S/MIME template enhancements

Updated the Public S/MIME Secure Email (via CertCentral) template to support:

  • Multiple email addresses within the SAN:rfc822Name extension.

Opmerking

  1. Searches based on a “mail” value (an email address) are currently done against the Subject DN Email field, not the SAN:rfc822Name extension.

  2. For CertCentral issued certificates, the LDAP service does not search against CA certificates, nor CRLs, only end-user Public S/MIME certificates for profiles with the LDAP option enabled.

Certificate Renewal Reminder email template enhancements

Added two new variables to the Certificate Renewal Reminder email template:

  • cert_serial_number: will show a “Certificate Serial Number” label in the renewal email with the associated certificate serial number of the certificate being renewed.

Users can select the Create custom report button, available on the Certificates page under the Create report icon above the table. The reporting wizard appears to guide you through report creation.

When a report is generated, an email is sent to the user who created the report.

All created/custom reports are available from the new Report library page inside the Report & Auditing menu option, where you can:

  • View the status of reports.

  • Download completed reports.

  • Re-run a saved report against the latest available data. The new report will be available for another 30 days.

Learn more about custom report generation.

Opmerking

The Certificate report link under the Reporting & auditing menu option will be removed in the next monthly release.

Enhancements

Audit log enhancements

  • Displays an info banner to the user when more than 5,000 audit events are encountered. The banner shows how many audit log events match the search criteria and advises the user to use filtering options to narrow the search result.

  • A new audit log resource type, Email, stores audit log events related to email sending operations and will simplify troubleshooting email-related issues.

Number of authentication attempts

Enhanced public-facing pages for enrollments making use of enrollment codes for authentication. These pages now show the number of failed authentication attempts as well as the maximum number of attempts allowed by the profile before locking the enrollment.

Additional certificate status values for automation flows

Added two new options to the certificate status field:

  • Replaced represents certificates that are replaced on a server using automation.

  • Replaced External represents automated certificates that are found to be replaced outside Trust Lifecycle Manager during a discovery task.

New permissions for connector pages

Added separate view, create, and manage permissions for connector pages.

Native Windows and Linux sensors

Trust Lifecycle Manager administrators can now install the DigiCert Sensor on Windows or Linux machines.

Fixes

Missing email templates

Resolved issue with some email templates not being displayed for profiles configured with the SAML IdP authentication method with the Enforce manual approval checkbox enabled.

Incorrect certificate status when suspending imported seat

Resolved issue when uploading certificates from an external system bound to an imported seat type. After suspending the certificate via the UI, the certificate status in Trust Lifecycle Manager was correct (showing a status of Suspended), but the revocation request to CA Manager was not submitted, causing the status to be shown as Valid and validation services not reflecting the correct status.

March 23, 2023

DigiCert® version: 1.4803.6 | Trust Lifecycle Manager: 1.1380.0

Enhancements

Enrollment code enhancements

Added new actions available from the enrollments page, for enrollments linked to a profile configured with an enrollment code authentication method. This allows an authorized administrator to:

  • Unlock a locked enrollment code via the UI after the maximum number of attempts has been reached.

  • Reactivate an expired enrollment code.

  • View an enrollment code and URL for enrollments associated with private CAs. This action is hidden for enrollments associated with public CAs.

Also added a configuration option for profiles configured with the enrollment code authentication method, to set the maximum number of incorrect enrollment code authentication attempts before locking.

Auto-copy a SAN:dnsName field with the SubjectDN:commonName value

For profiles configured from the “Generic Private Server” template, added an Auto-copy from SAN: dnsName checkbox for the Subject DN - Common Name field. This automatically copies the value into the dnsName field, regardless of whether this field is configured in the profile or not.

If a profile is configured with a dnsName field and a certificate request already contains one or multiple dnsName values, the Common Name value will appear automatically at the top of the list.

March 15, 2023

DigiCert® version: 1.4803.2 | Trust Lifecycle Manager: 1.1356.0

Enhancements

Certificate expiration email template

Customers with unmanaged or imported seat licenses can configure a certificate expiration email to be sent before the uploaded certificate expires. This configuration page is now available under the Settings - Uploaded certificates expiration menu, and will be visible only when an account has been allocated with Unmanaged and/or Imported seats/licenses.

Additional option for ACME enrollment

For third-party ACME client-based flows, we added a new parameter option for the client to explicitly ask Trust Lifecycle Manager to issue a new certificate from CertCentral irrespective of the status of the previous certificate. This allows users to enforce a re-enrollment in addition to the already available options to renew, reissue, or get a duplicate certificate.

Sample ACME URL: https://one.digicert.com/mpki/api/v1/acme/v2/directory?action=enroll

Fixes

Renewal reminder timeout for unmanaged/imported seats

Resolved an issue with renewal emails not being sent to end users. We have introduced a 30-second timeout period for the hourly job that takes care of sending renewal email reminders, when not receiving a response from the SMTP server responsible for sending the email.

Opmerking

We will not make a second attempt to send the same failed email at the next hourly run. Failed emails could pile up and there would be no room left for new emails to be sent. However, emails will be sent every [90, 60, 30, 15, 10, 7, 5, 3, 2, 1] days depending on profile configuration. Therefore, if an email fails to be sent at 90 days before expiration, the next attempt will be made at 60 days, etc.

Lowercase country values for unmanaged and imported seats

Resolved issue with not being able to upload unmanaged and imported certificates using a two-digit Subject DN country value in lowercase. We now support the upload of country values as case-insensitive values.

March 9, 2023

New

New extensions

Support for three new X.509 certificate extensions, which users can configure in the profile wizard:

  • Subject Alternative Name (SAN) Directory Name extension, supported by the Generic User Certificate template.

  • Certificate Policies extension, supported by all the standard templates, with the exception of the Public S/MIME (via PKI Platform 8) and CertCentral templates. You can configure a Certificate Policy extension with just a private OID, or include User Notice and/or CPS URL fields.

  • Issuer Alternative Name extension, supported by the Generic User Certificate template, when configuring a profile with the REST API enrollment method and 3rd party app authentication method.

New manual-enrollment REST API

For profiles configured with the “Manual approval” authentication method, you can use the new manual-enrollment API endpoint to submit a certificate request via API and drop it into the queues for authorized administrators to review and manually approve it or reject it.

Once a request has been manually approved, the user will receive an email with instructions on how to download the certificate via the currently supported web-based enrollment methods: CSR, Browser PKCS12, and DigiCert Trust Assistant.

Tip

Use the existing enrollment-details API endpoint to retrieve the status of a specific enrollment by submitting the enrollment Id.

SAML single logout

Enables a profile, with the SAML IdP authentication method, to be configured with a SAML single logout URL. This allows an end user to click on a Single Logout link displayed on the public-facing enrollment pages, which forces the logout of all connected SAML sessions on both the Service Provider and the Identity Provider.

Enhancements

DigiCert Trust Assistant for public S/MIME

DigiCert Trust Assistant support for the issuance of public S/MIME certificates (escrowed or non-escrowed, depending on the profile configuration) from PKI Platform 8 accounts, using the following authentication methods:

  • Manual approval

  • Enrollment code

  • SAML IdP

Updated menu items and other styling changes

  • Updated the left navigational menu items to use "sentence case" and follow DigiCert style guidelines. For example, “Business Unit” menu item becomes “Business unit”, “Reporting & Auditing” becomes “Reporting & auditing”, etc.

  • For public-facing enrollment pages:

    • Removed the colon after SDN and SAN section titles.

    • Updated the color, padding, margins, and font sizes of fixed field labels to meet DigiCert style guidelines.

  • Redesign of the audit logs details page to adhere to DigiCert design guidelines.

Seat object enhancements

  • Updated the GET Seat API endpoint to extend the response to include a seat_creation_date parameter showing the seat creation date.

  • Updated the Seat List web page to show an optional Created date column.

Profile wizard enhancements

  • Now allows for a maximum custom renewal window of up to 90 days.

  • Updated the renewal email template to also support sending renewal notifications up to 90 days in advance.

  • Variables inside the email templates are now alphabetically ordered.

Profile List page enhancement

Added a Seat type filter to the Profile List page to allow profiles to be filtered by a seat type.

Additional options in “Valid to” filter

Enhanced the “Valid to” filter inside the Certificates list page to support three new filters, in addition to searching between a date range:

  • By days, for example for: certificates expiring in the next 7 days.

  • From a specific date, for example for: certificates expiring after 1st March 2023.

  • Until a specific date, for example for: certificates expiring before 15th March 2023.

Enhancements to the Generic Private Server Certificate template

Enabled the Browser PKCS12 enrollment method and associated authentication methods, which are Manual approval, Enrollment code, and SAML IdP.

Fixes

Create custom report button in various places

Resolved a known issue that incorrectly showed the “Create custom report” button on the Certificates, Enrollments, and Seats List pages

Certificate and Seat consumption charts errors

Resolved an issue with Certificate and Seat consumption chart widgets within the Dashboard not displaying the correct data.

    Opmerking

    Key size restrictions apply per token vendor.

  • Import and export of certificates. Supported formats: X509, PKCS#7, PKCS#12 and GLCK (a proprietary format consumed by the legacy PKI Client software used by PKI Platform 8 customers).

  • Manual and auto-update of the client.

The client is available as a new Enrollment Method for the Generic User Certificate template, and supports the following Authentication methods:

  • Manual approval

  • Enrollment code

  • SAML IdP

Check the Administration and User guides for more information:

Certificate tags

  • Ability to assign and manage tags for one or more certificates.

  • Allows users to assign tags of their choice which can later be used to filter data in views.

  • Available for all certificates issued or discovered by Trust Lifecycle Manager.

New Source column in views

A new source column and filter are added to views. Source is defined by how the certificate was discovered (API Discovery, CA connector etc).

Global Enrollment Code

Ability to configure a SCEP-enabled profile with a global enrollment code that will be used to automatically issue certificates via SCEP to unregistered devices, without the need to previously create a Seat or an Enrollment.

New User ID field and new data type for the UniqueIdentifier field

For the UniqueIdentifier field:

  • New Subject DN User ID field (OID - 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.1) is supported by the Generic User Certificate template

  • For the existing Unique Identifier Subject DN field, the default encoding for the field is BitString. However, from this release onwards, an additional data type (PrintableString) can be selected when configuring this field inside the profile wizard to format the Unique Identifier value in either BitString or PritableString. Supported by the Generic Private Server template.

Enhancements

MariaDB upgrade

The internal MariaDB version was upgraded and qualified to use 10.6.11. This is of particular interest to DigiCert ONE on-premises customers.

Support for IP Address in ACME and Sensor Automation flows

Use IP address in place of domain names for private certificate issuance.

Updated application logo and email templates

  • Updated the application logo displayed within the administrator pages to not include the word “Manager”.

  • Updated email templates to be consistent across all application flows, including the same footer making use of the Admin contact detail variables that need to be set in order to be displayed within the email notifications.

  • Email subject lines displayed within the profile wizard are used as email subject values when sending email notifications.

  • The “Your certificate is ready” email template supports a new variable called Cert Common name. Account administrators can optionally add the new variable to this email template.

Profile wizard enhancements

Added the template use cases and description to the initial page when creating or editing a profile.

Breadcrumb changes

Updated the breadcrumbs for all the pages under the “Manage” menu item to reflect the correct navigational structure. Approval/rejection emails sent to administrators for profiles configured with the “Manual approval” flow now contain a URL with the word “manage” in the patch.

Opmerking

URLs within emails that were already sent redirect to the new URL.

DigiCert Autoenrollment Server enhancements

Updated the DigiCert Autoenrollment Server to version 2.23.1.0 with the below enhancements:

  • Updated references from Enterprise PKI Manager to Trust Lifecycle Manager.

  • Partially masked the API KEY value within the Autoenrollment Server logs—only the first four characters are displayed in the log.

Friendly country list

Enhancement to only display the allowed country list with their 2-letter ISO country codes as part of dropdown lists within various application locations:

  • Admin-based enrollment pages

  • Profile wizard, when selecting a fixed Country value

  • Public-facing enrollment pages for end-users to select when enrolling for a certificate

Show "-" if there is no data in the table

For all data tables including certificate views, if there is no data for a given row, a hyphen is shown to represent “no data”.

Add validation in create automation flows for wildcard and SAN usecases

Add validation based on CertCentral product settings for wildcard products and products when they support SANs.

Sensor v3.8.54 release

The sensor copyright version changed to 2023.

Fixes

Auto-refresh for views

Removed auto-refresh for all views except Managed Automation view. Streamlined refresh to be inline for the grid alone instead of refreshing the whole page. Auto-refresh preserves user state and ongoing actions.

Intune Device template

Resolved a miss-configuration issue with the Device Authentication for Microsoft Intune (SCEP) template auto-copying the Common Name value to the DNS Server field and causing errors with CA Manager.

DigiCert Autoenrollment Server

Resolved a connection issue against the Hello API endpoint that was introduced after last month's rebranding.

Revocation of imported certificates

Resolved issue with not being able to revoke certificates associated with the Imported seat type, which were uploaded to an account via their certificate-import API endpoint.

Known issues

DigiCert Trust Assistant—ECDSA p-521 error

Key pair generations using ECDSA NIST p-521 curves on Windows and macOS keystores fail with a csr_signature_failed error. Smaller curve sizes work successfully (p-256 and p-384).

January 11, 2023

New

Application rebranding

Updated all references to Enterprise PKI Manager to reflect the product’s new name: Trust Lifecycle Manager.

Rebranded the Enterprise PKI Manager application to Trust Lifecycle Manager. Assets that have been rebranded include:

  • Product/administration portals

  • DigiCert documentation and API websites

  • Email templates

  • Knowledgebase articles

Additionally, the “EPKI” certificate view has been removed from the default system views. Customers can make use of the “All Certificate” system view to filter the same certificate data and create their own custom views.

Issuance of Public S/MIME certificates via DigiCert PKI Platform 8

The new Public S/MIME Secure Email (via PKI Platform 8) certificate profile template leverages DigiCert PKI Platform 8 to issue public S/MIME RSA email signing and encryption certificates linked to a user seat.

Certificate requests can be enrolled and authenticated by these methods:

Enrollment method

Authentication method

  • Browser PKCS12

  • DigiCert Trust Assistant

  • Manual approval

  • Enrollment code

  • SAML IdP

  • REST API

  • Third-party application

  • Enrollment code

To learn more about this feature, see Public S/MIME Secure Email (via PKI Platform 8) template.

Opmerking

  • Existing PKI Platform 8 customers can simply share the API key with their DigiCert ONE Trust Lifecycle Manager account, where a new profile will be created to issue the Public S/MIME certificates. A matching profile will be automatically created within the PKI Platform 8 account.

  • Certificate lifecycle operations for Public S/MIME certificates issued via a DigiCert ONE Trust Lifecycle Manager account must be carried out within that account.

Managed automation - sensor DV

Issue DV certificates on sensor connections managed using certificate lifecycle automation. Create DNS integrations that allow sensors to fulfill DCV challenges to issue DV certificates to appliances and cloud providers.

Bulk actions on certificate lifecycle

In case of compromise or account consolidation, select more than one certificate to renew or reissue certificates in bulk.

  • Admin can select more than one certificate from Certificate section and trigger automation.

  • Admin can use APIs to bulk reissue certificates.

CertCentral Connector

With this release we are introducing the TLM connectors framework. This framework will help drive integrations in the future.

A new CertCentral connector is being added to:

  1. Issue private and public certificates. (Existing functionality will now use the connector instead of the CertCentral linking page.)

  2. Discover certificates. We can now pull certificate data from linked CertCentral account into TLM.

    1. Users can define what data should be imported (valid certificates, certificates expired in last x days, revoked certificates).

    2. This data can be assigned to a BU at import and also tagged with user defined labels. these labels will be available for search in the certificate views in a future release.

With introduction of connectors the “Link to CertCentral” feature is rolled into the CertCentral Connector.

Opmerking

The “Link to CertCentral” page is no longer available.

Domain control validation for OV/EV using ACME

Customers can now perform domain control validation (DCV) for pre-validated OV/EV organization Public TLS certificates from CertCentral using ACME.

With this release, clients can demonstrate domain control using either DNS (ACME DNS.01) or HTTP (ACME HTTP.01) methods for their OV/EV requests. This option is only available when other organization and extended validations are already completed.

Enhancements

ACME - Skip validation for prevalidated domains

TLM ACME server is no longer creating challenge requests for prevalidated domains during ACME flows.

This will simplify client-side workflows where a dummy validation needs to be hosted by the client. This in turn means that:

  1. Cert-manager: client can bypass challenge creation and validation step.

  2. Certbot: hosting of dummy challenge on port 80 (with requirement that port 80 not be used by any other service) is no longer needed.

CA Manager - Private certificate automation on appliances

Most appliances such as F5 and Citrix ADC require that an organization be specified when creating a CSR during automation. CA Manager - Private Server has been enhanced to accept an organization that can be used for such automation workflows.

Patch

Automation certificate profiles

Fixed an issue with the creation of automation certificate profiles.
