I recently received an email from PayPal asking us to upgrade SSL.
- Discontinue use of the VeriSign G2 Root Certificate. In accordance with industry standards, PayPal will no longer accept secure connections that are signed by the VeriSign G2 Root Certificate. Only secure connection requests that are expecting our certificate/trust chain to be signed by the G5 Root Certificate will result in successful secure connections.
- Update your integration to support certificates using the SHA-256 algorithm. PayPal is upgrading SSL certificates on all Live and Sandbox endpoints from SHA-1 to the stronger and more robust SHA-256 algorithm.
I'm using GodDaddy SSL. I clicked the green lock icon, and it shows the SSL is issued by GoDaddy Secure Certificate Authority - G2. Should I upgrade my certification? If yes; How do I upgrade it?
