The free certificate authority CAcert is making progress in increasing the number of its working groups. In the past few days, the committee approved the appointment of Jan to the post of Critical Engineer.
The appointment of Michaela as Access Engineer was also approved. Both have a broad range of experience and are distinguished by their specialist knowledge and sense of responsibility. We wish both engineers much success and fulfilment in their voluntary work for the CAcert community. These are challenging tasks and come with great responsibility. CAcert offers interested volunteers a variety of tasks, the opportunity to gain exciting experience and stimulating career opportunities.
Wytze reports on a planned outage for CAcert main systems, as the systems are moved from one rack to another:
“The move has been scheduled for Tuesday June 15, starting at 10:00 CEST, and hopefully ending before 18:00 CEST.
During a significant part of that period, all systems will be down. We will take care of providing a backup during the outage for ocsp.cacert.org (to avoid inconveniencing browser users which have OCSP enabled for CAcert, as they should!), and a placeholder for www.cacert.org which report the downtime and the reason for it.”
