Certificate with lesser validity?


#1

Hi,
Can I request for a certificate with lesser validity period? For e.g., something like 1 week validity for testing purpose?

Also, does LE issue (or plans to issue) any other type of certificates, for e.g., certificates that can be used as second factor of authentication in scenarios like VPN authentication?

Regards,
Richa

I don’t believe there’s any way to request a longer or shorter validity period–90 days is what it is. I don’t know why a longer valid period than you need would be a problem, though–if you don’t want or need the cert any more, just stop using it (and possibly delete it).

They’ve said they don’t have plans for identity certificates, since there’s no real automated way to validate them.
