In the coming few months we will start running some services with Let’s Encrypt server certificates. We decided to go this route to make it easier for people to join our community or contribute to our work.
A nice side effect of this move will be that we can provide these services https encrypted and redirect all unencrypted http URLs to their https counterparts.
We will continue to use our own server certificates for our CA systems and other services that are only relevant after joining our community.
We also will continue to provide our community with client and server certificates. All our services that support or require client certificates will still use those issued by our CA.
What’s a #review compared to solving a problem? Flutter like a butterfly on one of our bug flowers and check out the code. Here are the second four, if you don’t find anything suitable for you to join the #CAcert spring offensive, we’ll give you four more in a few hours.
Nothing that fits you? Have a look to the first four links we published two hours ago in the german post.
You are a hero, you want to support your #CAcert #community during the #Spring #Offensive. You are willing to care at one of 72 small tasks that have been waiting to be completed for months. That is how to deal with the bug tracker: It is described in simple words at https://wiki.cacert.org/Mantis-Crash-Course
Roberto Cirillo has been CEO of Swiss Post for just under two years. Before that, he was a McKinsey consultant, CEO of the British hospital group Optegra and head of the activities of the service company Sodexo in France. Cirillo took up his post with the aim of stopping the downward trend. In the past five years, the Post’s turnover has fallen by around CHF 1 milliard. The volume of letters is decreasing rapidly, the post offices are less and less frequented.
In an interview with the NZZ, he said: “Today, we make more than 90% of our turnover in the logistics sector with business customers. Especially in e-commerce and goods logistics. Of the CHF 3 milliard we plan to invest in the next four years, the majority will go into logistics and communication services. The reason why the Post was created over 170 years ago was not to transport letters. It was the secrecy of letters. It was about transmitting information securely, reliably and trustworthily. That’s what we want to do more of in the digital world as well.” (22.02.2021)
Dear friends and members of the CAcert community. Are you curious and want to know what is wrapped in the package under the tree? This year, Father Christmas has packed something really nice.
As always with CAcert, you can unwrap it faster and enjoy it more quickly if you help out a little. Translate a little. Or do a little programming. Or test a few new functions. Or like this. To do so, you find further information on the web or write to our secretary.
The General Assembly of 2021 will go down as the shortest meeting in the history of CAcert. After only one and a half hours, President Brian McCullough was able to close the last agenda item. Kim N from Sweden is a new member of the committee.
Furthermore, the integration of CAcert in OpenIDConnect could be announced, thanks to a cooperation with RIPE NCC for this project.
