DigiCert Unveils Automated SSL Certificate Verification Service

DigiCert, Inc. verifies SSL certificates to ensure essential web services are properly secured


LINDON, UT (August 24, 2010) – DigiCert, Inc., a leading provider of Authentication & Encryption services, automatically checks every SSL certificate issued to ensure all DigiCert certificates are functioning properly after installation.


SSL certificates encrypt the transfer of sensitive information online. From online shopping to secure email messages or even private health records, SSL certificates have a wide variety of applications in every industry.


DigiCert strives to reach out and identify potential issues that might occur with SSL certificates as part of a larger goal of enabling online security. After a certificate has been issued by DigiCert, the automated certificate checker verifies that both the certificate and any necessary intermediate certificates have been correctly installed on your server. If any problems are identified, DigiCert will contact the customer directly with an explanation of the error and the instructions on how to resolve it.


“Our new automated certificate checker has been a very successful service for our customers and our support team,” says Flavio Martins, Vice President of Support and Validation. “This service can identify various installation problems, including intermediate certificate issues and name mismatch errors. If a problem is identified, we send an email to the customer explaining the error and also include the steps to fix it. Additionally, our support team is readily available and willing to assist customers with completing proper installation and resolving any errors.”


If you are worried about your current SSL certificate installation, no matter whom the certificate is issued by, you can check its validity through DigiCert’s manual certificate checker tool, available at www.digicert.com/help.
