Apple ends two-year certificates

Modification starting from 1 September 2020


According to current media reports, Apple is aiming to shorten the term of SSL/TLS certificates from the current 2.5 years to just over one year.

From September 1, 2020 on Apple devices, all websites whose certificates are valid for more than 13 months will be marked as insecure. In the DFN-PKI, this will result in a corresponding change in the validity period from 825 days to only 398 days.
