Unsupported certificate requests

CERTUM, being a member of the Certificate Authorities Browser Forum, is discontinuing the practice of certifying Internal Server Names and Reserved IP Addresses. Following a decision by the Certificate Authorities Browser Forum, CERTUM does not issue certificates whose Subject Alternative Name (SAN) extension or Subject Common Name field contains such names.

The Internal Server Name is any name whose address is not recognized by the public Domain Name System DNS (e.g. server.local „,”server2.group”, etc.) . The Reserved IP Address is any address defined by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) as reserved.

In order to increase security on the Internet, members of the Certificate Authorities Browser Forum (CA / Browser Forum) specified guidelines regulating the manner of issuing and implementing SSL certificates. As a result, a document was produced in which, among other provisions, the Forum requires certification authorities to cease certification of public key certificates that use Internal Server Names or Reserved IP Addressess.

Pursuant to the decision made by the Certificate Authorities Browser Forum, we hereby state that as of July 1, 2012, we do not accept certificate requests and applications for certificate renewal which Internal Server Names and Reserved IP Addresses.
