Per related posts on this topic, I'm forwarding an email from one of our customers for a request to issue them 2 SHA-1 SSL certificates which will allow them to continuing POS terminals  until they complete their SHA-2 migration later this year.

GlobalSign would like approval to issue 2 SHA-1 SSL certificates to the domains below which would expire before 1/1/2017 and which would have 20 bits of entropy in the serial number field.

Subject: Help to support SHA-1

Dear Sirs.

We would like to present the following situation for your consideration.

Since February 7th 2016 we have established a relationship with Seguridad America a representative of Global Sign. Our previous CA was Symantec Verisign represented by Cert Superior and we were issued a certificate that supports SHA-1 and they failed to inform us that this protocol had a deadline.

We urgently need your consideration for the issuance of a certificate that can support SHA-1. If not, we would be under serious risk of losing operations in an estimated 13,000 POS terminals which operate under our current "stand-alone" platform which would require nationwide onsite visits for software upgrades and in some cases hardware replacement which would need to undergo a purchasing process.

Based on previous explanation, we request your consideration and your assistance in this urgent matter. We would require 2 certificates that support SHA-1 for the rest of calendar year 2016, while we continue the acquisition and deployment of the terminals. We estimate that this process would conclude by November.

It's very critical for Banco Popular to get the certificates that support SHA-1 in order to avoid important financial loss and affect thousands of Customers that we serve.

The expiration date of the two certificates of Production is May 22nd 2016.
The domains of the certificates are:

We highly appreciate your consideration of this matter and thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide given that we had no knowledge of this situation and therefore the scope of its impact.

Our Best Regards

Sergio E. Solari A.
Technology Executive Vice president
