Starting today, AWS IoT Core is enabling customers to create additional AWS IoT Core endpoints for their account in each region that will serve an Amazon Trust Services (ATS) signed certificate instead of a VeriSign signed certificate. Using ATS endpoints will help customers avoid potential issues resulting from the upcoming distrust of Symantec Certificate Authorities (CAs) by Google (announcement), Apple (announcement), and Mozilla (announcement) as the ATS root CAs are trusted by default in most popular browsers and operating systems. For more information on how to get started with ATS endpoints refer to this blog post.
