Bing Maps Root Certificate Migration
As part of our ongoing commitment to security we are making a change to our SSL certificate chain that will require a small number of customers to take action before June 15th, 2013.
Bing Maps currently uses the GTE CyberTrust Global Root and beginning on June 15th, 2013 will migrate to the Baltimore CyberTrust Root. The new root certificate uses a stronger key length and hashing algorithm which ensures we remain consistent with industry-wide security best practices. If your application does not accept certificates chained to both the GTE CyberTrust Global Root and the Baltimore CyberTrust Root, please take action prior to June 15th, 2013 to avoid certificate validation errors. While we seek to minimize the need for customers to take specific action based on changes we make to the Bing Maps platform, we believe this is an important security improvement.
Important Information about Bing Maps Spatial Data ServicesRichard_BrundrittMicrosoft EmployeeSaturday, March 17, 2012 10:07 AM
Since its release earlier this year, we have seen interest in, and usage of, our Bing Maps Spatial Data Services (SDS) grow rapidly.
The result is that at times of peak load the number of evaluation accounts using the service is pre-empting other requests. Today we have made a change to the SDS service that will prioritize requests from Enterprise Accounts. You can check the status of your Account to see if you have an Enterprise Account by logging into the account on the Bing Maps Account Center.
We regret that this means that you will no longer be able to submit new jobs to SDS from non-Enterprise Accounts until you request and are given access to SDS as detailed below. To be clear, data already uploaded to the SDS service can still be queried; it is only when you try to update those data sets, create new ones, or download them that you will receive an error.
If you would like to request access to SDS for a non-Enterprise Account application, you can do so by emailing MAPLIC@microsoft.com with your Account ID and (for publically accessible sites) top level domains. Be sure to send this request from the email account on record in the Bing Maps Account Center. (Replies will only be sent to these accounts so please check your SPAM filters and the usual things that might complicate communication.)
Please also note that if you are using the SDS service from an Enterprise Account, then you should not need to take any action related to production accounts. Your application should not require any changes. If you experience any issues please let us know via your enterprise support contact.
As we continue to enhance the SDS system this process will be improved and made more efficient. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
