GlobalSign Releases Open Source PHP Library

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

GlobalSign, a specialist in SSL Partner Programs, announced it launched an open source PHP library to boost the availability of its OneClickSSL solution in hosting environments.

OneClickSSL was launched in 2011 to revolutionize the way hosting companies activate SSL for their customers’ websites. OneClickSSL is already available for the major control panel platforms including Parallels, cPanel and IIS, as well as through web service APIs to help hosting companies embed the technology in their own environments.

The free library to OneClickSSL solution was released by Paul van Brouwershaven, EMEA Business Development Director, GMO GlobalSign Ltd., during his talk on March 20 in the Sanssouci seminar room at World Hosting Days 2012 in Rust, Germany.

Introducing the free library to OneClickSSL solution, GlobalSign took custom integration one step further, eliminating any remaining integration barriers for hosting companies aspiring to augment SSL usage, while avoiding the customer service costs usually associated with SSL.

Hosting companies only require users to download the library to their server or application if they seek benefit from instant provisioning of SSL Certificates. Once operational, the OneClickSSL service automates the usual SSL process that involves submitting the application for an SSL Certificate to validate ownership of the domain, and installing the Certificate and related intermediate Certificates.

“As more organizations move toward complete SSL automation using OneClickSSL, it is essential for GlobalSign to ensure that all hosting companies, regardless of which control panel or server software they provide, can access the technology,” said Paul van Brouwershaven. “As the community starts to build their own plug-ins to implement OneClickSSL in their in-house environments, we decided to make our own open source PHP library available on Github to simplify integration and maintenance.”

GlobalSign was recently in the news when ISPsystem adopted GlobalSign’s OneClickSSL technology, allowing its hosting customers to benefit from automated SSL provisioning directly from their control panel.
