Azure Certificate Authority details

This article provides the details of the root and subordinate Certificate Authorities (CAs) utilized by Azure. The scope includes government and national clouds. The minimum requirements for public key encryption and signature algorithms as well as links to certificate downloads and revocation lists are provided below the CA details tables.

Looking for CA details specific to Azure Active Directory? See the Certificate authorities used by Azure Active Directory article.

How to read the certificate details:

  • The Serial Number (top string in the table) contains the hexadecimal value of the certificate serial number.
  • The Thumbprint (bottom string in the table) is the SHA-1 thumbprint.
  • Links to download the Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) and Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER) are the last cell in the table.

Past changes

The CA/Browser Forum updated the Baseline Requirements to require all publicly trusted Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) to end usage of the SHA-1 hash algorithms for Online Certificate Standard Protocol (OCSP) on May 31, 2022. Microsoft updated all remaining OCSP Responders that used the SHA-1 hash algorithm to use the SHA-256 hash algorithm. View the Sunset for SHA-1 OCSP signing article for additional information.

Microsoft updated Azure services to use TLS certificates from a different set of Root Certificate Authorities (CAs) on February 15, 2021, to comply with changes set forth by the CA/Browser Forum Baseline Requirements. Some services may not finalize these updates until 2022. View the Azure TLS certificate changes article for additional information.
