SSL Encryption Moves to 2048
As mentioned earlier in the year, our SSL vendors have been transitioning to 2048-bit roots for all SSL certificate products including all SSL products sold through Digital Days. As a result of the transition, our vendors now require 2048-bit Certificate Signing Requests (CSRs) to be submitted with most SSL certificate orders.
Please note that while it is technically possible to submit a 1024-bit CSR with some shorter-term SSL products for some brands of SSL certificates sold through Digital Days, we strongly recommend that you require and submit 2048-bit CSRs with all certificate orders . Requiring 2048-bit CSRs for all orders now will ensure that you avoid any complications both now and in the future as our vendors continue the transition process.
