New CA Release


For web shop customers, the filing of certificates for certain Gold Class products is now also possible electronically.


3-year SSL certificates can be applied only before the March, 1st 2018

SwissSign now offers the possibility of an SCT entry in the certificate (Precertificate) for the certificate issuance of SSL EV Gold Certificates. This is especially useful for older Web server versions that do not support OCSP stapling. So far only OCSP Stapling has been offered.

Please pay attention to our information concerning release maintenance work on May 15, 2017 from 6pm to 12pm

Due to compliance requirements for some mail programs (lastly Gmail), we do not offer 5-year certificates anymore and instead offer 2-year certificates.

We want to draw your attention to maintenance work which will be carried out on Saturday, 1 April 2017 between 10.30 am and 4.00 pm (shop release 3.1).

Release changes


A new release of the CA software has been implemented with some changes.

End of February it was possible to produce two different documents with the same SHA-1 hash . It is now also practically shown that the use of the SHA-1 algorithm represents a concrete risk and the use should be avoided.

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
