CAcert renewed root certificates

CAcert has finally upgraded the Root and Class 3 certificates from the old MD5 encoding to the modern SHA-256. Your browsers will like us again! The new certificates were installed in “the usual places” on April 10th. You may go to our web site home page, https://www.cacert.org, and over on the right-hand side, three lines from the top, is “Root Certificates.” The short way to get there is https://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3.

We would like to thank all software team members for the job they did. All teams consist of volunteers. If you want to support the work done by the Software Team, including the review, please donate to continue to run this service. Thank you.

CAcert erneuert Stammzertifikate

CAcert hat endlich die Stamm- und Class 3-Zertifikate von der alten MD5-Kodierung auf die moderne SHA-256 aktualisiert. Ihre Browser werden uns wieder mögen! Die neuen Zertifikate wurden am 10. April an “den üblichen Orten” installiert. Sie können auf unsere Homepage https://www.cacert.org gehen, und auf der rechten Seite, drei Zeilen von oben, finden Sie “Root Certificates”. Der kurze Weg dorthin ist https://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3.v

CAcert a renouvelé ses certificats racine

CAcert a finalement mis à jour les certificats Root et Class 3 de l’ancien encodage MD5 vers le moderne SHA-256. Vos navigateurs nous apprécieront à nouveau ! Les nouveaux certificats ont été installés dans “les lieux habituels” le 10 avril. Vous pouvez vous rendre sur la page d’accueil de notre site Web, https://www.cacert.org, et sur le côté droit, à trois lignes du haut, se trouve “Root Certificates”. Le chemin le plus court pour s’y rendre est https://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3.v

Nous aimerions remercier tous les membres de l’équipe du logiciel pour le travail qu’ils ont fait. Toutes les équipes sont composées de bénévoles. Si vous souhaitez soutenir le travail effectué par l’équipe du logiciel, y compris la révision, veuillez faire un don pour continuer à faire fonctionner ce service. Merci.

Stability of e-mail verification strongly improved

The e-mail verification on the CAcert web server has recently led to repeated support requests. An analysis of the log files in our data center showed that the corresponding error occurred more frequently. So we have to conclude that many CAcert users have been negatively affected. In order to avoid further negative effects, an emergency
patch was deemed necessary by the Critical System Administrator Team.

The standardised review and testing of the emergency patch implemented yesterday is carried out by the regular teams in the aftermath, which can result in a formal blessing for this patch or a request for additional code or configuration changes. We would like to thank the Critical System Administrator Team for their quick and decisive action. All teams consist of volunteers. If you want to support the work done by the Critical System Administration Team and the review by the Software Team, please donate, to continue to run this service. Thank you.

Software update for secure mail servers

When you add an new email address to your profile, the verification works now also on secure mail server handling TLS1.1 or TLS 1.2. CAcert’s software team has updated our software to get more possibilities to our community members.
