Comodo Launches New Digital Certificate Searchable Web Site
Free to Use Site Allows for IT Leaders to Harness the Power of Certificate Transparency to Discover and Cross-Check all of Their Digital Certificates
Clifton, NJ, June 17, 2015 — The Comodo organization, a global innovator and developer of cyber security solutions, today announced that it has launched a new certificate transparency web site https://crt.sh/ free to use, to help IT Administrators and Technology Directors keep track of all known digital certificates for their web properties.
By simply entering a domain name or organization name, users are shown a complete list of issued certificates, together with details of the relevant Certification Authorities. This information can help to keep networks secure, by drawing attention to possible unauthorized or expiring certificates.
https://crt.sh/ discovers certificates by continually monitoring all of the publicly known Certificate Transparency (CT) logs. CT is a technology that enables the detection of potentially mis-issued certificates by requiring all certificates to be recorded in publicly accessible logs. There is currently a standardization effort for CT by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). In beta tests, https://crt.sh/ has received very positive reviews and feedback:
“Solid and easy to work user interface. Super fast and simple.” — Mike Hearn
“Great search tool. Very helpful” — Hubert Kario
Digital certificates authenticate the identity of a website, enabling the secure transfer of encrypted information between browsers and servers. These certificates are managed and issued by Certification Authorities. According to public data by w3techs.com, Comodo is currently the number one Certification Authority in the world (1).
