HARICA introduces new 2021 hierarchy for SSL/TLS Certificates

We are pleased to announce that on the 1st of June 2022, HARICA will switch the issuance of SSL/TLS certificates to its 2021 Root TLS Certification Authorities.

Both HARICA TLS RSA Root CA 2021 and HARICA TLS ECC Root CA 2021 are already pre-installed on Windows operating systems as well on macOS 12 providing the necessary trust anchor for Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and other popular Internet Browsers. In addition, Mozilla Firefox has updated its Certificate Store with HARICA’s new RootsCAs.

For older operating systems and browsers, HARICA issued two additional cross-certificates to chain the 2021 hierarchy with the older 2015 one for increased ubiquity.

Both HARICA TLS Root 2021 ECC and RSA cross-certificates can be used by our subscribers in their certificate chain files to cover the majority of browsers regardless of their version.
