SwissSign: Maintenance work on Saturday, 10th September 2016, between 9.30 am and 06.00 pm

Dear SwissSign customers, partners and people interested in SwissSign,

Our website is unfortunately unavailable on Saturday, 10th September 2016, between 9.30 am and 06.00 pm (CET), because of maintenance work.

The site is not affected by this maintenance and is available at all times.

Thank you for your understanding.

We look forward to your next visit. 
Your SwissSign team

We renew our SSL certificate on our testsystem on Monday, August 22nd, 2016.

On Saturday August, 6th 2016 a new release was installed. The release covers the following features:

  • Upgrade of the data base and better performance of the database. In special the search functionality was optimized. Adaptation to the growing data volume due to the huge number of new contract customers.
  • Optimization with Umlauts (UTF-8) also in the scope of the managed PKI configuration
  • New free field in the contact area. This field can be assigned to a certificate request or certificate in order to have better possibilities for administration. It could be used for an order ID, department ID, etc.
  • Optimization concerning the configuration of the e-mail for the managed PKI customers. A lot of customers do not want to receive e-mails concerning the end of validity of their certificates since they are using client applications which send out their own e-mail messages or which handle the e-mail renewal automatically in the background. It is now better possible to configure these messages for the managed PKI customers. Appropriate configuration input can be done in the Managed PKI Setup Agreement.

We want to draw your attention to maintenance work caused by the switch to a new release which will be carried out on the weekend of 6/7 August between Friday, 5 August, 9.00 pm, and Sunday, 7 August, 8.00 pm (Release 4.2).

System Status Update from 23.6.2016:

Change IP address from July 6, 2016

We would like to inform you that we will change our systems at July, 5th 2016 between 12am and 1pm to a new IP address. Normally our systems are called by a URL thus nothing will change. In some IT environments the firewalls were probably explicitly configured to let pass our IP addresses. In this case your IT administrator of the firewalls has to change the IP address to the new value. We leave the additional link to the old IP open for a certain time span in order to facilitate the switch in your firewall. Please inform your IT administrator!

The IP address will change at follows:


 Old IP

 New IP
