View Full Version : Authorize.Net SSL Connectivity

01-16-2004, 02:34 PM
I got a notice from Authorize.net about SSL root certificates. How can I check in my V1 set up to see if my site will work?

Verisign recently established a new Root Certificate for SSL certificates it issues. On January 7, 2004, Verisignís old Root Certificate expired. As a result, if you submit transactions to the Authorize.Net Payment Gateway via Advanced Integration Method (AIM), and currently have Verisignís old Root Certificate installed on your Web server, your connection to the Authorize.Net Payment Gateway may have been temporarily broken.

To correct the problem, Authorize.Net received a new certificate from Verisign and you should now be able to successfully submit transactions. However, you must manually update your Web server software to include support for Verisignís new Root Certificate prior to February 9, 2004. Failure to do so may result in further connection difficulties.

If your Web site uses any Java applications, please see http://sunsolve.sun.com/pub-cgi/retrieve.pl?doc=fsalert%2F57436&zone_32=57436 for detailed information on resolving this issue.

If you use a Web hosting service, please contact your service provider for information regarding their plans to update their server software to include support for Verisignís new Root Certificate. You may also need to contact your companyís Web Developer or Systems Engineer for assistance.
