    Replaced SHA-1 Web SSL Certificate with SHA-2

    Sep 13 2016, 6:40 PM Mar 29 2018, 9:05 PM

    by Sean Nittner

    As per your own support article ( you understand that SHA-1 algorithms are not secure. Please update the certs in Symantec Endpoint Manager to SHA-2 in your next release.

    (Note: I undertsand that this process can currently be done by a system administrator, but the current documentation, is very general and not specific about the process. I have no capacity to create a new develpoment server to test this migration or make the change on our production server without greater assurances that it will not cause errors or interruptions in service)

    Thank you,

    Symantec Messaging Gateway Signing Request

    May 02 2017, 10:48 PM Mar 29 2018, 9:04 PM

    by stevenwells99

    When a certiifcate request is generated by SMG, it doesn't allow for a FQDN in the Subject Alternative Name.

    When a certificate is used by an internal CA it is not trusted by Chrome version 58 or higher.

    The work around is to make Chrome ignore this security feature, meaning Chrome is less secure that it could be.

    In Chrome 58 if you get the error NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID you need to update and re-issue your certificates (eg. for the Symantec Messaging Gateway) using a resolveable Fully Qualified Domain Name (FDQN) in the certificate Subject Alternative Name (SAN).

    Suggest SMG be updated to create certificate signing method correctly.

    ISV Application Whitelisting based on code-signing certificate

    Mar 29 2017, 8:47 PM Mar 29 2017, 9:25 PM

    by Robert Jennings

    Can ISV application whitelisting be based on certificate?

    Other AV software vendors have this ability and it would reduce the submissions for whitelisting.

    Website Security Solutions

    I want to propose an Idea to Product Team of Wesite Security Solutions, basically who are managing the SSL Certificates for enhancing the product capabilites and offerings to end user.

    1. Symantec Secure Site Wildcard SSL: In this product I suggest to Product team for adding SAN entry without "www" by default, without this entry our product prompt error over the browsers due to "name mismatch"

    2. PCI Scanning: As other vendors in the market they are offering PCI scanning also with there website security products, so I would like to request to Product team kindly look into this.
