Subject: Important Notice: SSL Certificate
Date: March 30, 2015 at 14:03
Dear valued iATS Payments client,
On Sunday, March 29th we performed an emergency update to the SSL certificate for our North American servers. The default for the new certificate was a SHA-256 algorithm, however, this update resulted in server connection issues for a few of our partners. As a result, we have now re-established a SHA-1 SSL certificate.
The connection is now working and if needed you may reprocess any rejected transactions.
For those affected, we strongly recommend you speak to your development team or software partner to ensure you can accommodate for a SHA-256 hash algorithm to maintain alignment with the security best practices.
We apologize for the inconvenience this issue may have caused your organization and donors. Should you have any questions, please contact iATS Customer Care at 1-888-955-5455 Option 1 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
