CertCentral: Revocation reasons for revoking certificates

CertCentral supports including a revocation reason when revoking a certificate. Now, you can choose one of the revocation reasons listed below when revoking all certificates on an order or when revoking an individual certificate by ID or serial number.

Supported revocation reasons:

  • Key compromise* - My certificate's private key was lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised.
  • Cessation of operation - I no longer use or control the domain or email address associated with the certificate or no longer use the certificate.
  • Affiliation change - The name or any other information regarding my organization changed.
  • Superseded - I have requested a new certificate to replace this one.
  • Unspecified - None of the reasons above apply.

*Note: Selecting Key compromise does not block using the associated public key in future certificate requests. To add the public key to the blocklist and revoke all certificates with the same key, visit problemreport.digicert.com and prove possession of the key.

Revoke immediately

We also added the Revoke this certificate immediately option that allows Administrators to skip the Request and Approval process and revoke the certificate immediately. When this option is deselected, the revocation request appears on the Requests page, where an Administrator must review and approve it before it is revoked.

Background

The Mozilla root policy requires Certificate Authorities (CAs) to include a process for specifying a revocation reason when revoking TLS/SSL certificates. The reason appears in the Certificate Revocation List (CRL). The CRL is a list of revoked digital certificates. Only the issuing CA can revoke the certificate and add it to the CRL.

CertCentral: Improved Order details page

DigiCert is happy to announce that we improved the layout and design of the Order details page.

We took your feedback and updated the Orders page to make managing your certificates and orders easier throughout their lifecycle.

When we reorganized the information on the Order details page, we didn’t remove anything. So, everything you did before the updates, you can still do now. However, there are a few things you asked for that you can do now that you couldn’t do before.

Summary of changes:

  • We added new banners, alerts, and icons to help you better understand the actions you need to take on your certificates and orders.
  • We added a Certificate history tab to the Order details page. Now, you can view and interact with all the certificates associated with the order: reissues, duplicates, expired, and revoked.
  • We added the ability to revoke an individual certificate or all the certificates on the order.
  • We also updated the Orders page to add Certificate and Order alert banners, advanced search features, and columns in the orders list.
  • These changes do not affect Guest access. When accessing an order via guest access, you will not see any of the updates.

See the changes for yourself. In your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Orders.
