Apple will start distrusting Symantec certificate authorities starting from July 20, 2018


#1

Apple (along with a number of other vendors) have announced that they will start distrusting Symantec certificate authorities

Apple will start distrusting Symantec CAs from July 20, 2018

As early as July 20, 2018, Apple products will partially distrust Symantec Certificate Authorities (CAs). Apple products will completely distrust Symantec CAs at a later date, as early as Fall 2018.

Site operators using Symantec Transport Layer Security (TLS) server certificates that were issued before June 1, 2016 or after December 1, 2017 need to transition to a certificate issued by an Apple-trusted CA.1

For site operators using Symantec TLS server certificates that were issued between June 1, 2016 and December 1, 2017, these certificates will continue to be trusted if the certificate’s Signed Certificate Timestamp (SCT) date is before December 1, 2017 and they meet Apple’s CT Policy.2 These certificates will be trusted only until the full distrust of Symantec CAs at a later date.

All other TLS server certificates issued by Symantec will be distrusted this summer.

If you are using certificates signed by any of the following CAs and issued before June 1, 2016 or after December 1, 2017 you will need to get a new certificate from a trusted CA to avoid connectivity issues.
