SSL(Self-Signed) Certificates are working fine on Firefox and Safari, but not on Chrome

Yesterday, I implemented self-signed SSL certificates to one of my websites, and to my surprise https link was working as expected on Safari and Firefox, but not on the Chrome browser. I was getting the following error:




With this, I connected with my IT team and come to know that, the certificates are not generated properly. All the browsers support different SSL expiry dates and we had to raise requests again to generate SSL Certificates for a minimum duration which was of 398 days (Apple) so that it can support all the browsers and new certificates worked without any issue.


Edit: 28-09-2020

Looks like all the Browser developers such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Mozilla have agreed to keep the SSL Certificate Lifespan common - 398 days. Please read more about it here:
