20120614 - Symantec - Thawte - Geotrust : End of 5 years valid products

As of June 14th 2012 Symantec, Thawte and Geotrust certificates won't be available in 5 years valid versions anymore.

Only a few products are concerned:
  • Thawte Standard
  • Geotrust True Business ID
  • Geotrust True Business ID Wildcard
  • Symantec Secure Site
  • Symantec Secure Site Pro

It is one of the consequences of the new standards (see the Baseline Requirements) created in November 2011 by the CA/B forum.

It is only an intermediary step. Indeed in 2015 certification authorities will have to stop issuing certificates more than 39 months valid.
