Google’s Chrome 39 Sunsetting SHA-1

Google has announced that they are sunsetting SHA-1 (as used in certificate signatures for HTTPS) with Chrome 39 in November 2014. SHA-1 root certificates are not affected by this plan.

Most providers are offering free upgrades to SHA-2 certificates so be sure to contact yours to see if you qualify.

More info can be found on Google’s security blog.
