Google to distrust Entrust SSL/TLS certificates: what this means for your business

Google Chrome is distrusting Entrust certificates issued after October 31, 2024. This means websites using them will be flagged as unsecured. Don't let your business be caught off guard.

The catalyst for distrust

  • Over the past several months, Entrust has had a lengthy set of compliance failures that have resulted in extremely delayed revocations and a great deal of sometimes heated online dialog about these errors.
  • As a result of these and earlier incidents, Google Chrome announced that it is distrusting Entrust's public roots issued after October 31, 2024.
  • The Google Security Blog stated "Over the past six years, we have observed a pattern of compliance failures, unmet improvement commitments, and the absence of tangible, measurable progress in response to publicly disclosed incident reports.... Chrome’s continued trust in Entrust is no longer justified."
  • Companies with Entrust public SSL certificates will have to source a new certificate authority or their website will be flagged as untrusted on Chrome.

Immediate action required for Entrust customers

If you have Entrust certificates, immediate action is necessary. Any website using a public Entrust certificate issued after October 31, 2024 will be treated as an unsecured site on Google Chrome, and likely other major browsers will follow suit. Companies must source a new certificate authority before the deadline to avoid their websites being flagged as untrusted. To prevent this, follow these steps:

Step 1
