Microsoft’s SHA-1 deprecation plan (all Microsoft products, including Windows® and Internet Explorer®)

January 1 2016 Microsoft ceases to trust Code Signing Certificates that use SHA-1

January 1 2017 Microsoft ceases to trust website SSL Certificates that use SHA-1

July 2015 Microsoft will conduct a status review and might accelerate the two dates above

If you have a SHA-1 based certificate which expires after the dates listed above then you need to have it replaced with a SHA-2 version before the deadline. SHA-1 based certificates will continue to be trusted by Microsoft® software up until the dates listed above, but not afterwards. After these dates have passed, Microsoft software such as Internet Explorer® and Windows® will reject code signing and SSL certificates that use SHA-1.

Although Microsoft is the first to explicitly name an end-of-life timescale for SHA-1, it is likely that other major vendors such as Mozilla, Google, Apple and Opera will follow suit in the coming months. Comodo, along with all other major CA’s in the Certificate Authority Security Council, strongly advises our customers and partners to plan on upgrading their certificates to SHA-2 as soon as possible.

See page https://www.comodo.com/e-commerce/SHA-2-transition.php for further information about the migration.

Effective immediately, new certificates will be issued for one year only if you will be using SHA-1. SHA-2 certificates will be issued for up to 3 years, if you choose to. SSL certificates will not be replaced, new ones will need to be done. This also affects adding any domains to a SAN certificate.
