Solution-Soft Announces the Release of the High Demand Time Machine® SSL Certificate Exclusion Enhancement to Meet Enterprise Customers' Need

SANTA CLARA, CA, June 3, 2021, SolutionSoft Systems Inc. (Solution-Soft), the Leader in Virtual Clock Testing and Time Shift Testing has announced the general release of Time Machine Windows enhancement of SSL certificate exclusion.

SSL certificates have a valid date range build-in and the authentication would fail if the systems checking the certificate are outside of the valid date range.  This represents special challenges for customers performing time shift testing with virtual clocks.  The application would fail if virtual clock is either before or beyond the SSL certificate valid date range.

The remedy is for the IT security team to re-generate those SSL certificates for the testing systems.  It could be such a frequent and tedious event to keep up with the testing schedule as an out-of-bound SSL certificate would invalidate the whole test run.

Additionally, it is a challenge to generate the right SSL certificate if users need to time travel multiple years to the past or in the future.  Some enterprises also have extremely strict security policy where generating different SSL certificates than the production systems are not allowed.

With the increasing demand from our customers requesting the SSL enhancement, we have elevated the priority to implement this automatic SSL exclusivity capability. By working closely with customers our DEV teams were able to confirm the enhancement specification would fit their needs and delivered it for all Time Machine Windows releases much sooner.

Our customers are extremely pleased that we pushed the general release of this complicated implementation in such a short time. "Solution-Soft prides itself on being able to fulfill customers' needs by listening to our customers. We are very appreciative of our long-term customers giving us feedback that makes our products more robust." said Paul Wang, Chief Technology Officer at Solution-Soft.

Since the general release, some enterprise customers have already installed the new feature and test seamlessly. Happy customers are our top priority.
