Advisory Notice - OU Text Field Guidelines For All Certificates

Dear Customer,

Effective December 15, 2019, Sectigo will discontinue the practice of populating SSL certificate OU fields with information which has not been supplied by the certificate Applicant and/or which is not directly and verifiably related to the certificate Subject.

This change will not impact the performance of these certificates in the web PKI (browsers and on websites),servers or intermediate devices, nor will it require remedial environmental changes.

We are sending you this notification as an advisory in case custom applications in your environment rely on specific patterns of subject information in certificates that they choose to trust, in which case you may need to adjust the requirements of those applications.

Again, this change to our certificate subject profile will not affect any of the standard uses of active certificates with browsers and on websites, servers or intermediate devices, or CDNs.

For assistance or further details related to this matter, please contact our technical support department by telephone or by using our ticketing system:

+1 (888) 256-2608 (US)
+1 (914) 732-8446 (International)
Monday thru Friday, 4 AM - 8 PM EDT
