I’ve been using LetsEncrypt successfully for about 6 months. However, the network police at NIH are officially complaining about these certificates:
Per IRT, the certs that you are using for megworkshop.nih.gov and kurage.nimh.nih.gov obtained from the free SSL site Let’s Encrypt Authority are no longer accepted as valid/trusted by the IRT. You need to acquire new certs from an IRT approved source like GoDaddy or Verisign.
Please let us know if you have any questions. The deadline for this is 4/6/2017 - but the sooner the better.
I’ve shown them that the site is secure, it gets an a+ rating from one or the other check sites. They don’t care. GoDaddy is better, they say.
So I’m just letting you know. I hate to not use your service because it’s so easy and convenient. I’m being FORCED to switch!! You need to get in contact with the NIH (or the US Gov’t in general). Anything you can tell me, like a doc from the gov’t saying it’s fine, would be appreciated.
