Visa Developer PKI

An X.509 Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is implemented by Visa for issuing and managing digital certificates to be used in conjunction with Visa products and services. This PKI consists of a hierarchy of entities called CAs that issue certificates to “Subscribers” (that is, end-entities or other CAs) within the hierarchy. The term Visa PKI is used to refer to all of the Subscribers from the root CA all the way down to the lowest level end-entity.

This page provides the Visa Developer Platform public certificates used to identify Visa API endpoints.

New Certificates for Upcoming Renewals

We are moving to a single leaf certificate that will be able to identify our Sandbox and Certification environments. We will continue to provide a single certificate to identify our Production environment. If you are inspecting our leaf certificate, you will want to ensure that you have pre-trusted the certificate below prior to environment certificate expiration dates above.
