After a new member was added to the access engineers team it was possible to visit the datacenter following the epidemiological guidelines for SARS-CoV-2, as well as our own security guidelines.
During this visit we applied the long-awaited patch for bug 1438 by adding the serial number to certificate revocation lists.
This visit also provided an opportunity to instal a new infrastructure-server, courtesy of Abil’I.T. , a Luxembourg based free software service provider. Many thanks again!

We did the Class-3-resigning during this visit. Currently we’re testing this new Class-3-certificate and will publish it real soon.
A new visit in the summer will be necessary to replace hardware (and maybe apply further patches on the signer).
