Updates on GlobalSign

You may be aware GlobalSign are currently experiencing some issues with their OrganisationSSL and DomainSSL, which is causing certificate alerts and warnings.

It was brought to our attention and we’d like to relay the message from a GlobalSign representative:

“GlobalSign manages several root certificates and for compatibility and browser ubiquity reasons provides several cross-certificates between those roots to maximize the effectiveness across a variety of platforms. As part of a planned exercise to remove some of those links, a cross-certificate linking two roots together was revoked. CRL responses had been operational for 1 week, however an unexpected consequence of providing OCSP responses became apparent this morning, in that some browsers incorrectly inferred that the cross-signed root had revoked intermediates, which was not the case.”

Here's a guide on how to troubleshoot these issues to get your certificates back on track.

Remember we, at SSL247, also have a range of premium certs from other CAs and our dedicated Account Managers will be happy to assist with further options to suit your business needs.
