|This bulletin provides you with information about the old VeriSign Global Server ID Intermediate Root CA which expired on 1/7/2004 and the actions you must take if this expiration has impacted your server. |
The old VeriSign [128-bit SSL] Global Server Intermediate Root CA will expire on 1/7/2004. Servers that have not been updated with the new Global Server Intermediate Root CA will experience issues establishing SSL (https) sessions after 1/7/2004.
Note: This issue does not impact servers using VeriSign [40-bit] Secure Server ID certificates.
Who should read this bulletin?
Customers who have not installed the new VeriSign Global Server Intermediate Root CA on their server(s) or who are not sure which intermediate root CA is installed on their server(s). The new VeriSign Global Server Intermediate Root CA has the following properties:
Issued to: www.verisign.com/CPS Incorp.by Ref. LIABILITY LTD.(c)97 VeriSign
Issued by: Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority
Valid from: 4/16/97 to 10/24/11
In December, 2001, VeriSign started issuing a new Intermediate Root CA with all [128-bit SSL] Global Server IDs (GSIDs), signed by a new root certificate that expires in 2028. The new Global Server Intermediate Root CA expires in 2011.
All GSIDs VeriSign has issued since December, 2001, have included the new  Global Server Intermediate Root CA. Some server software automatically updates the intermediate root CA certificate in the server certificate store, while other server software requires manual updates of the intermediate root CA. Although VeriSign has been providing instructions on how to manually install the new Global Server Intermediate Root CA to all GSID customers since December, 2001, it is possible that some customers may not have noticed the reminder and are unaware of this issue.
If an application uses PKI best practices, it will check that the validity periods of all certificates in the trusted chain do not overlap, and report an error accordingly. Because 24-month certificates issued after 1/8/2002 and 12-month certificates issued after 1/8/2003 would have validity periods in excess of the original Intermediate CA, when you obtained a new GSID that expired beyond 1/6/2004, your server application should have generated an error.
The solution is to update the intermediate root CA certificate store on your server(s) with the latest version of the VeriSign Global Server Intermediate Root CA. A copy of the new Intermediate Root CA (along with instructions on updating Microsoft IIS 4.0, Microsoft IIS 5.0, Apache, and Netscape 3.6) is available at the following link:
