SSL certificates and cipher settings update

Friday, May 1, 2015

Following current best-practices, we have updated our SSL certificates with SHA256 hashes and 2048 bit key length.

Our score at the Qualys SSL Labs test is an A, the best grade possible at the time of this writing when running Microsoft IIS servers.

The consequence of these changes is that some old systems, especially Windows XP with IE8 when not fully patched, may no longer be able to access SERAM. However, we believe that following good security practice is more important for our service than remaining compatible with outdated technology. Of course, you can contact our Service Desk at any time if you have access problems and we'll do our best to help you access SERAM.
