Chrome support for Symantec SSL Certs


#1

When I talk to my agent, I note that Chrome (Windows 10) is giving me warnings about the pending release 66 of the browser (March/April 2018), where Symantec SSL certs will no longer be trusted. Does Electric Imp have a plan for this?

Yes, we’re switching over to another provider (RapidSSL, which we used, had a symantec intermediate cert). However, because there is pinning in the blinkup app, we have to do it a little slowly to minimize any interruptions a customer might see.
