Expiry of Sub CA "Hongkong Post e-Cert CA 1" with effect from 15 May 2013

Hongkong Post Certification Authority completed the rollover of Sub CA on 26 February 2010. Since then, the Sub CA "Hongkong Post e-Cert CA 1" has ceased to issue any new certificates, but it continues to update and issue Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) until expiry.

By 15 May 2013 at 15:29:10 (Hong Kong Time), the Sub CA "Hongkong Post e-Cert CA 1" will expire, and all certificates previously issued by it will expire before 15 May 2013.

The Sub CA "Hongkong Post e-Cert CA 1" will issue the last full CRL and partitioned CRLs at 14:15 on 15 May 2013 (Hong Kong Time) at the following links and no further update will be provided in future:

(a) Full CRL

  • http://crl1.hongkongpost.gov.hk/crl/eCertCA1CRL1.crl

  • ldap://ldap1.hongkongpost.gov.hk

As there will be no further update to the above mentioned CRLs after issuance on 15 May 2013 at 14:15 (Hong Kong Time), you are advised to stop any regular download of the above CRLs after their issuance to prevent any possible false alarm of download failure of updated CRLs.
