Decription: PayPal is making several security updates to meet PCI Standards Group requirements over the next year. It is critical that your systems support these new standards by key dates to avoid any disruption of service.
The first key deadline is June 17, 2016 for you to ensure that your SSL environment supports the use of the SHA-256 signing algorithm and VeriSign’s 2048-bit G5 Root Certificate.
Changes: All the changes are explained in PayPal’s 2016-2017 Merchant Security Roadmap Microsite.
Recommended action: Please review these changes with your Solution and Hosting Partners or internal technical team and make the SSL environment update by June 17 to ensure uninterrupted service.
