Chrome Browser Now Warns About Weak SHA-1 Certificates

Monday, December 14, 2015

The Google Chrome web browser is now warning users if Outlook on the web (OWA) or other websites are using SHA-1 SSL certificates.

These certificates are no longer considered secure and should be replaced ASAP. Please read my article, "Is Your Organization Using SHA-1 SSL Certificates?" on Windows IT Pro for more information and steps you should take.

SHA1 certificates are being sunsetted by January 1, 2017. These certs should be replaced or re-keyed with SHA256 certs to improve security and prevent outages.
