Release Note CertSign API V1.11.6 – April-May 2023 – EN


As part of our effort to improve our e-signature service, we will be rolling out a new version of the CertSign API service in April and May.

This new version brings the following improvements:

  • Added Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP)
  • Strengthened hash algorithm for archiving

The 1.11.6 release is scheduled for April and May 2023 with a two-phase deployment:

  • Tuesday 25/04/2023 at 11:30 CET: Sandbox environment made available
  • Wednesday 10/05/2023 at 11:30 CET: Production environment made available

Please note disruptions related to the version update may be observed in both environments for up to one hour.

The new version will only be deployed once you have confirmed the successful completion of the sandbox tests.

Our support team remains at your disposal if you have any questions or feedback.



Added Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP)

The Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) is an efficient and secure protocol that enables certificate verification in real-time.
With this protocol, there is no need to periodically download and verify lists of revoked certificates. The validity of a certificate is verified by sending a request directly to an OCSP server.

Strengthened hash algorithm for archiving

To enhance the security of our service, we have increased the size of the hash algorithm used for document archiving in accordance with security recommendations.
