In a previous blog post we reported that Google and Microsoft are encouraging Certification Authorities (CAs) to depreciate the vulnerable and outdated SHA-1 cryptographic algorithm and move to the stronger SHA-2.
Starting January 1, 2016, CAs must not issue any new SSL certificates using the SHA-1 hash algorithm. CAs may continue to sign certificates to verify OCSP responses using SHA-1 until January 1, 2017. This year also began with an important update.
We are happy to announce that you are now able to purchase SSL certificates using Bitcoin on SSLs.com
Our Bitcoin capability is powered by Stripe, one of the world’s most progressive and frictionless payment processors. SSLs.com is the first SSL shop to take advantage of Stripe’s support for Bitcoin payments. Bitcoin is one of the most widely used virtual currency based on a peer-to-peer payment network that does not exist in physical form, as it is not affiliated to any financial institutions or governments and controlled by all Bitcoin users.
