ICA certificate chain selection for public OV and EV flex certificates

We are happy to announce that public OV and EV certificates with flex capabilities now support Intermediate CA certificate chain selection.

You can add an option to your CertCentral account that enables you to control which DigiCert ICA certificate chain issues your public OV and EV "flex" certificates.

This option allows you to:

  • Set the default ICA certificate chain for each public OV and EV flex certificate.
  • Control which ICA certificate chains certificate requestors can use to issue their flex certificate.

Configure ICA certificate chain selection

To enable ICA selection for your account, contact your account manager or our Support team. Then, in your CertCentral account, on the Product Settings page (in the left main menu, go to Settings > Product Settings), configure the default and allowed intermediates for each type of OV and EV flex certificate.

For more information and step-by-step instructions, see ICA certificate chain option for public OV and EV flex certificates.


DigiCert Services API support for ICA certificate chain selection

In the DigiCert Services API, we made the following updates to support ICA selection in your API integrations:

  • Created new Product limits endpoint
    Use this endpoint to get information about the limits and settings for the products enabled for each division in your account. This includes ID values for each product's default and allowed ICA certificate chains.
  • Added support for ICA selection to public TLS OV and EV flex certificate order requests
    After you configure allowed intermediates for a product, you can select the ICA certificate chain that should issue your certificate when you use the API to submit an order request.
    Pass in the ID of the issuing ICA certificate as the value for the ca_cert_id parameter in the body of your order request

Example flex certificate request:

New product settings for flexible certificates

To provide more control over your certificate ordering process, we added two new product settings to our flexible certificate offerings:

  • Maximum number of SANs allowed (can't exceed 250)
  • Allow wildcards.

Now, you can limit the number of SANs included on a flexible OV or EV certificate order. Additionally, you can prevent users from including wildcard domains in their flexible OV certificate orders.

To configure flexible certificate product settings, in the left main menu, go to Settings > Product Settings.

Flexible OV and EV certificates

These more flexible SSL/TLS certificates make it easier to get the certificate to fit your needs: Basic OV, Basic EV, Secure Site OV, and Secure Site EV. They will replace the old Basic and Secure Site products.

To activate any of these new certificates for your CertCentral account, contact your account manager or our Support team.
