DigiCert and Entrust Certificates (Moneris Gateway and IP Gate)
Moneris will be updating its internet communication security certificates on the Moneris Gateway effective March 13, 2018, and IP Gate effective April 9, 2018. This is a regular practice that is mandated every few years and will not impact the majority of our merchants if they regularly update certificates.
Moneris will be changing from a Verisign certificate to a DigiCert certificate. Businesses that have not updated their digital certificate or have ‘hard coded’ the existing Verisign certificate could face issues processing payments.
As a business that uses the Moneris Gateway for your eCommerce, mail order and telephone order business, and IPGate for your integrated in-store solution, we are asking that you verify your ‘certificate store’ or ‘trust store’ contains the most up-to-date security certificates – specifically those from Verisign, DigiCert and Entrust – by testing your connection in the QA environments below.
Businesses that already have Verisign, DigiCert and Entrust root certificates stored will not be impacted.
What you need to do:
Please test your secure connection in the QA environment using the URLs below. If there are no issues, this means your business is prepared for the digital certificate update and no further action is required.
If you are unable to connect in the QA environment, please download the packages below to your certificate store or trust store.
Web developers who have ‘hard coded’ our current Verisign certificate will need to manually add the new certificates to their code environment.
