Note
titleImportant notice for InCommon SSL certificate customers

If you are using an InCommon SSL certificate that expires on or after 1/1/2016, you may need to obtain a new SSL certificate to avoid certificate warnings in at least one popular browser. This change is related to an industry-wide migration away from the SHA-1 signing algorithm in favor of SHA-2. Read Transition to InCommon SSL Certificates Signed with SHA-2 to learn more.
