The Countdown is on: There are 123 Days to identify and replace Entrust Digital Certificates before they become Untrusted on 1 Nov 2024.

The task, in order or importance:

1) Identify ALL Internet Facing Assets using Entrust Certs
2) Replace ALL Entrust Certs by 1 November 2024

Sounds easy doesn’t it. The challenge however is vast. The majority of companies DO NOT have a full inventory of their Internet Assets mainly due to the ‘Digital Gold Rush‘ over the last 15 -20 years.

Hundreds, even Thousands of subdomains are literally strewn all over the place used by criminals to gain unlawful Access into a Network. That’s before we start thinking configuration, redirection, and of course DNS… Servers using Entrust Certs will also be effected.

Sadly, we are not able to help everyone, however, Whitethorn and Whitethorn Shield can identify ALL Internet Assets and Identify the Digital Certificate issuer whether it be DigiCert, GlobalSign, or any other, including Entrust.


Once identified, the appropriate certs can be replaced with certs from a Trusted provider. Panic over…

As I say, the scale of the problem is pretty vast and unfortunately the only way we could ever hope to identify ALL Entrust Certs in the wild is if Entrust themselves were to offer this as a service from us. That is unlikely to happen so in the meantime, please start forming an orderly que.
