Preparing for 90-Day TLS Certificate Expiration


Automation of certificate management will be key for large organizations.

Certificate life-cycle management is a continual challenge for system administrators, says Murali Palanisamy, especially in large organizations that may have hundreds or thousands of certificates to manage.

Thus, Google’s proposal to shorten the lifespan of TLS certificates to 90 days is likely to result in increased complexity and more time spent managing the process.

In this article, Palanisamy outlines five ways to prepare for the change, including:

  • Gain visibility: Having a clear view of certificates is key to managing renewals and removals.
  • Track use-by dates: Automation can help track and maintain certificate renewals by sending alerts to relevant staff in a timely manner.
  • Establish governance: Creating a stable policy across all units in the organization will standardize issuing and managing certificates and simplify auditing.
