Issuing a LE SSL that expires in 24 months or more


#1

Hello all,
Is there any possibility to issue a LE SSL that expires in 2 or 3 years instead of 390 days ?

Any information will be very helpful

Thanks in advance

Hi @pnamroud,

This isn’t possible. Let’s Encrypt only issues certificates with 90 day validity periods.

You can read more here: https://letsencrypt.org/2015/11/09/why-90-days.html

Beside the fact that Let’s Encrypt only issue certificates that last 90 days, CA/B forum also does not permit public trusted CAs to issue certificates that last longer than 2 years.

Limit is 825 days (~ 2.26 years) at the moment.
