    Will JotForm be using security certificate with SHA2 and RSA2

    Asked by UnLitho on December 18, 2014 at 07:09 PM

    The following is conveniently copied for its examples from here.

    chrome-compact-floating-addressbar

    As of late 2014, SHA1 certificates and it’s SHA1 trust chain (not including the Root CA) will be considered insecure by Google Chrome.

    A three step process will increase the severity of the warning:

    1. Initially SHA1 certificates that expire on/after 2017/1/1, and which contain SHA-1-based signatures in the validated chain, will be shown the “Secure, but minor errors” icon.  This is a lock with a yellow triangle chrome_95440_https_warning_triangle

    2. Severity will increase thereafter, where:
    SHA1 certificates that expire between 2016/6/1 and 2016/12/31, inclusively, and which contain SHA-1-based signatures in the validated chain, will be shown the “Secure, but minor errors” icon. This is a lock with a yellow trianglechrome_95440_https_warning_triangleSHA1 certificates that expire on/after 2017/1/1, and which contain SHA-1-based signatures in the validated chain, will be shown the “Neutral, no security” icon. This is the blank page icon, as shown by HTTP URLs. SNP_2709331_en_v0

    3. Finally Chrome will render websites with SHA1 certificates that expire on/after 2017/1/1 and which contain SHA-1-based signatures in the validated chain, with the “Affirmatively insecure, major errors” icon. The “Affirmatively insecure, major errors” icon is a lock with a red Xchrome_14679_redhttps_en

    To resolve this issue SHA2 certificates must be installed.

     

    ------

     

    Considering your certificate expires in the next few months, it might be convenient to go ahead and have them renew at SHA2 and get that done and over with.

    Thanks for the information.

    We will migrate all our certificates to SHA2, after new year.
