Hi, I have renewed the SSL certificate of my iSeries system. While renewing certificate, I haven't got any option to specify the number of days to renew the certificate. It is getting renewed for 1 year by default. How to increase these number of days for SSL certificate while renewing it. Thanks & regards, Ketan Sheth.

    It might depend on your certificate provider. You need to contact them and ask what options they provide. I would expect that you can't change the expiration period since longer periods can require longer key lengths. Instead of renewing, you will probably need to request a new certificate that has a longer period. . I believe that 1-year renewals can be better because they can be easier to schedule. Also, if personnel change, procedures might be forgotten or reminder e-mails might be lost. Organization details can also change and need to be re-authenticated as more years go by. However, longer terms can also come with slightly less cost per year. . As I understand things, you can typically purchase server certificates for 1, 2 or 3 years. From at least one provider I've seen, a 4-year certificate can be bought. Root certificates typically expire after 10 years. Someone with detailed experience might post corrections to what I've written here or add useful details. . Tom

    This February we renewed our iSeries SSL certificate. The expiration date was imbedded in the certificate data itself. As Tom said, that date is based on the duration of the certificate we purchased. It is not something we could specify during installation.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have not purchased this certificate from any of the certificate provider. I have created a certificate authority on the system itself & assign this certificate to specific applications which will use this certificate. This configuration is done on 6 AS400 systems. Renewal of certificate is not a big task & can be done every year but still It would have been better option to renew it, for say 3 years & I was searching the same option while renewing the certificate. Thanks Ketan

    Ketan, we use SndTweet from Kisco which requires the same type of self-issued certificate which you describe. While creating the certificate there was an option to enter the number of days. I believe I entered 2000 because DCM shows that the certificate is valid for more than five years.

    Doug & Tom, I might had took default period of 1 year while creating the certificate for the first time. I shall check if I found any additional information on this. Thanks for the discussion. Ketan
