1998-2014 Root CA Certificate
The Root CA with serial number 02 00 00 00 00 00 d6 78 b7 94 05 has an expiration of Jan 28 2014. From 2007 onwards, this root has been replaced with a refreshed Certificate using the same key material and maintaining the same Subject DN information and key usages, however expiring in 2028. For those already using the refreshed Root CA Certificate, there is no need to update. This has already been embedded in all major browsers, operating systems, devices and applications.
If you need assistance with legacy applications relying specifically on the 2014 Root CA Certificate please contact support.
