GlobalSign Root Certificates

Feb 19, 2024

Overview

GlobalSign's root certificates are some of the most trusted root certificates in the PKI ecosystem. Since our inception, we have generated future-proof root certificates that exceed current industry best practices. We work diligently to protect the security of our root certificates, providing end users with trust anchors that secure all types of organization and individual authentication.

The major Browsers and Root programs have set requirements in place to create and use "single-purpose" roots, so different use-cases and applications will use their respective roots. Starting in 2019 and continuing into 2020, GlobalSign created new single-purpose roots, which are listed below.

To find out which products are using what roots, please see this page: https://support.globalsign.com/ca-certificates/intermediate-certificates 

Multi-Purpose Roots

R1 GlobalSign Root Certificate

GlobalSign Root R1

SHA1 • RSA • 2048

Valid until: 28 January 2028

Serial #: 04:00:00:00:00:01:15:4b:5a:c3:94

Thumbprint: b1:bc:96:8b:d4:f4:9d:62:2a:a8:9a:81:f2:15:01:52:a4:1d:82:9c

Root R1 was GlobalSign’s first root certificate embedded in browsers (back in 1999, Netscape and Windows 98), making Root R1 GlobalSign’s oldest and most ubiquitous root certificate. The original use case was for personal certificates, but this quickly expanded as GlobalSign’s business and expertise broadened. Due to its hash algorithm, GlobalSign will begin scaling back Root R1 use.

R3 GlobalSign Root Certificate

GlobalSign Root R3
SHA256 • RSA • 2048

Valid until: 18 March 2029
Serial #: 04:00:00:00:00:01:21:58:53:08:a2
Thumbprint: d6:9b:56:11:48:f0:1c:77:c5:45:78:c1:09:26:df:5b:85:69:76:ad

Root R3 is GlobalSign’s second oldest root, and as ubiquitous as Root R1. Its hash algorithm is more secure than R1, and therefore all of GlobalSign’s business (TLS, code signing, timestamping document signing) chains to this root.

R5 GlobalSign Root Certificate

GlobalSign ECC Root R5

SHA384 • ECC • 384

Valid until: 19 January 2038

Serial #: 60:59:49:e0:26:2e:bb:55:f9:0a:77:8a:71:f9:4a:d8:6c

Thumbprint: 1f:24:c6:30:cd:a4:18:ef:20:69:ff:ad:4f:dd:5f:46:3a:1b:69:aa

Root R5 is GlobalSign’s first ECC root, providing customers a pure ECC hierarchy. It features a SHA-384 hash with a 384-bit key length, making it one of GlobalSign’s most secure roots in the PKI ecosystem. It has been embedded in every major browser and security trust list.

R6 GlobalSign Root Certificate

GlobalSign Root R6

SHA384 • RSA • 4096

Valid until: 09 December 2034

Serial #: 45:e6:bb:03:83:33:c3:85:65:48:e6:ff:45:51

Thumbprint: 80:94:64:0e:b5:a7:a1:ca:11:9c:1f:dd:d5:9f:81:02:63:a7:fb:d1

Root R6 is GlobalSign’s most secure, robust RSA root. At SHA-384 with a 4096-bit key length, it is poised to take on most of GlobalSign’s core business, especially as Root R3 retires. It has been embedded in every major browser and security trust list.

TLS Root Certificates

TLS Root R46 Root Certificate

GlobalSign Root R46

SHA384 • RSA • 4096

Valid until: 20 March 2046

Serial #: 11:d2:bb:b9:d7:23:18:9e:40:5f:0a:9d:2d:d0:df:25:67:d1

Thumbprint: 53:a2:b0:4b:ca:6b:d6:45:e6:39:8a:8e:c4:0d:d2:bf:77:c3:a2:90

Root R46 is GlobalSign’s newest RSA root, and was submitted to the Mozilla Root Store late 2019. It will serve to replace Root R6 when R6 expires.

GlobalSign Root E46

SHA384 • ECC • 384

Valid until: 20 March 2046

Serial #: 11:d2:bb:ba:33:6e:d4:bc:e6:24:68:c5:0d:84:1d:98:e8:43

Thumbprint: 39:b4:6c:d5:fe:80:06:eb:e2:2f:4a:bb:08:33:a0:af:db:b9:dd:84

Root E46 is GlobalSign’s newest ECC root, and was submitted to the Mozilla Root Store late 2019. It will serve to replace Root R5 when R5 expires.
