DigiCert Root Certificates are automatically recognized by all common web browsers, mobile devices, and mail clients, therefore for browser scenarios there is nothing to do. The same is true if one relies on the standard sapjvm trust list.

The CA root certificate is included in:

  • SAP JVM patch level 8.1.035 or 7.1.054

  • Cloud Foundry buildpack SAP-Java (sap_java_buildpack) version 1.6.15
