SHA-1 SSL Certificates & Associated Ciphers

The end of SHA-1 SSL certificates and associated Cipher suites is quickly approaching. An upgrade to SHA-2 SSL certificates and Ciphers before June 1, 2018 is necessary to maintain proper security. Failure to upgrade to SHA-2 SSL certificates and Ciphers in a timely manner will result in the inability to process payments.

Next steps you will need to take to complete updates:

POS/Computer Systems

Most POS terminals or web-based applications can be updated by simply updating or downloading new software. Contact your software provider as soon as possible to ensure that your POS or application accepts SHA-2 certificates.


If you are using Merchant Passport, Property Payments or B2B powered by International Bancard no software updates will be required.
