What You Need To Do With Your Symantec Certificates | Venafi Skip to main content
Can you find all the Symantec certificates in your organization’s network? Not sure how to replace these certificates or when you need to act? You have come to the right place.
Finding Your Affected Certificates

The first thing you need to do is to find every installation of all certificates that chain up to Symantec. This means you’ll need to locate certificates from dozens of Certificate Authorities (CAs). And since one certificate can be installed in multiple locations, you’ll need to make sure you can find each installation in order to take action.

Venafi Cloud provides you with a comprehensive Symantec certificate list and the installation location for certificates from subordinate CAs that chains up to a Symantec root certificate.

How Long Will Your Symantec Certificates be Valid?

Getting Started: Choose Which Certificates to Replace
  1. From the certificate list, choose which certificates you want to replace based on the deadlines and installation locations.
  2. For each certificate, be sure to note the following as it will be needed for requesting and deploying the new certificates.
    • Certificate common name or certificate subject alternative name
    • IP address where the certificate was found
Then, Select a Replacement Method
