Chrome deprecates the 'Subject' property in certificates

The following change will not affect you, if:
  • you are not using a secure site
  • your certificate already contains a 'Subject Alternative Name'  property.

The latest version of Chrome has deprecated the 'Subject' property on the SSL certificate and uses 'Subject Alternative Name' property instead.

From now onwards, should you browse to an application that uses a certificate without a 'Subject Alternative Name', a privacy error will be shown. Also, some images might not render properly.

The way to resolve this is to install a new certificate on the server with the 'Subject Alternative Name' property.

See this for more information.


Thanks Dina for bringing this to our attention!
