thawte SGC SuperCert SSL Deprecation

Server Gated Cryptography (SCG) certificates are used for maintaining a 128 bit connection irrespective of browser age. They are designed to step up the encryption to 128 bit. With the new norm of SHA-256 for all SSL certificates.

The thawte product thawte SGC SuperCert  will no longer be compatible with SHA-256. This is the reason why  thawte announced they will discontinue their SGC SuperCert product in the 2nd Qtr of 2015.

Acmetek recommends the SSL Web Server with EV as a suitable replacement certificate. Added benefit with this certificate is it also offers Green Bar at a similar cost.
