Is Your SSL Still Trusted?
Google is gradually starting to sunset SHA1 Encryption. This will mean that if your SSL is using SHA1 Encryption, it will eventually show that your site is untrusted despite the fact that you have purchased the SSL from a reliable issuer.
How do you know if you are affected?
- If you have a website that has an SSL installed, you will want to verify the encryption for your certificate.
- If you have an active SSL, you will want to visit https://shaaaaaaaaaaaaa.com/ to check the encryption of your secured site.
- If the site shows that the SSL is SHA1 Encrypted, please contact the issurer of your SSL to have it reissued using SHA2.
- If the site shows that the SSL is SHA2 Encrypted, you are not required to take any further steps.
