Changes in Paypal certificates in what affect me as a seller?

If you are a user of Paypal it is possible that in the last few days you receive a notification of this type:


"We are putting us in contact with our customers to provide them with important information about an update related to security which affects the entire sector and is not exclusive of PayPal. This change involves the update of SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates for 2015 and 2016. It is expected that start with API endpoints update in June 2015.


Given that these changes are of a technical nature, we recommend you to get in contact with your partner, provider of the web site or those responsible for the integration of PayPal. You can determine if it is necessary to make any changes. Forward the information listed below to your technical contact for an assessment of it. We want to help your technical contact for this process to ensure that it can continue processing payments through your current integration.


You will find detailed technical information in our security for sellers: changes in the system guide. In our microsite on changes of certificates SSL 2015-2016 (in English) can also consult the plan of service update calendar."


But this, what?


Due to the rapid evolution of technology, the internet security is one of the major problems that we face today. PayPal as payment in internet, continues giving priority to the safety of its customers.

For this reason, from this platform has been requested to all its users that stop using Verisign (1028 bits) G2 root certificate to begin using the certificate root G5 (2048 bits) safer than the previous ones. In addition, you must update integration to make it compatible with certificates using the SHA-256 algorithm, which will be required in 2016.


Since last February, Paypal has changed the SSL certificates at endpoints of API/IPN in the sandbox, so that they are no longer signed by certificate VeriSign root G2. Sellers will have to prove their integrations in order to verify that they can work with Paypal.

SSL PayPal API change will take place on June 19 and August 19.
