  • Google Chrome and SSL Certificates

    We recently got a three year subscription for our SSL certificates, however, they were encrypted using SHA1 which Google Chrome is going to phase out in November, warning users that our site is not secure! Great! Our Certificate provider will re-key the certificates no charge, but, obviously, the certs will need to be reinstalled on 3dcart servers which we have already paid to do. Question?, is 3dcart going to charge us to install those same certificates once we re-key them using stronger encryption?

    I would suggest contacting customer service and asking them.

      Hi! Which SSL are you using? I'll get a ticket opened for you so our SSL specialist can go over any questions you may have as well as explain what's happening in November with Chrome. We have no intention of having Chrome customer's experience some security issue in November. I'm also quite certain that GeoTrust, Verisign, and any other SSL authority do not want that as well :)

        Mark, thank you for this Alert.
        I had no idea this was happening until I saw this thread. Upon researching I think everyone should be very concerned about this, especially that it is being rolled out right before Christmas.

        We use Cloudflare.com, and they handle the SSL so I assume all will be well, but I will check with them nonetheless.

          Here is the update from Cloudflare.com for those that have their service:
          Thanks for reaching out. We are aware of the deprecation of SHA1 in Google Chrome and are working with our third party SSL vendor on short & long term solutions so that our customers are not impacted. Not much to share publicly, yet, but we are working internally on the issue.
          I think 3dcart should do a courtesy Alert on the Control Panel to all their customers. I guess the issue will be how much to charge for re-installing all these SSL certs? The usual $99, or a discounted one time rate?
