GlobalSign announced on Wednesday that it is the first Certificate Authority to provide all certificate revocation status services over IPv6.
GlobalSign says its announcement is an important step for the SSL ecosystem, as “revocation status services underpin the base security system providing trust to the Internet.”
Currently, all GlobalSign SSL certificates are available and enabled for IPv6 at no additional charge, and earlier this week, GlobalSign launched a new solution that allows hosting of multiple SSL certificates on a single IP address to help free up IPv4 resources.
“We are proud to be the first CA to offer revocation status services that are IPv6 compliant,” Ryan Hurst, CTO of GlobalSign said in a statement. “Making investments to support the evolving requirements of the Internet is an important part of GlobalSign’s philosophy to not just be an SSL provider but a security partner. Organizations that work with GlobalSign benefit from a partner that understands the changing nature of the modern Internet and that IPv6 has now become the new norm.”
