CBR: US TLS Certificates Left to Die As 20th Day of Shutdown Passes

CBR: US TLS Certificates Left to Die As 20th Day of Shutdown Passes. “As 400,000 federal staff are furloughed and many received a pay check this week that had zero dollars in it, government employees are remaining at home, while essential staff are calling in sick in protest. This is causing the day-to-day maintenance and upkeep of department websites to lag into dangerous territory. It is estimated that over 80 websites with the .gov domain now have expired TLS certificates as no IT staff are currently being paid to maintain the .gov websites.”
