Is the recently announced failed validation limit effective?


#1

From https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/failed-validations-rate-limit/26368:

From https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/:

We will soon (February 2016) introduce a Failed Validation limit of 5 failures per account, per hostname, per hour. This limit will be higher on staging so you can use staging to debug connectivity problems.

Is this limit effective on production servers and should it perhaps say February 2017 instead of 2016 on the rate limit documentation page?


#2

Made a PR to fix the year issue. Other modifications to the announcement I will leave to the Let’s Encrypt guys.


#3

Thanks for flagging the incorrect date @tjs.

@Osiris - appreciate the PR! The website should be updated to reflect the change shortly.


#4

Also, the change is not yet live - we are blocked on fully deploying gRPC, which this feature depends on.


#5

What is this about? Is this some boulder internal thing?


#6

Yep. It’s a new, more performant, and more convenient RPC subsystem that we will be using in Boulder.
