Resolved: Secure Certificates slow

Last updated on April 14, 2014 at 2:59PM

Update on April 14, 2014 at 2:59PM

InCommon/Comodo has added significant capacity to the backend. We are no longer seeing delays in certificate processing.

Update on April 9, 2014 at 5:01PM

At this time we have managed to get very few certificates from InCommon/Comodo since about 1pm. Depending on responsiveness of their website this evening we may be able to get more through. The system has been usable in the morning, so if you are going to need a certificate, please submit the CSR either this evening or first thing tomorrow and we will attempt to get them all processed in the morning.

Original Alert

As a result of demand for replacement certificates because of the openssl bug "heartbleed," processing of SSL certificates is slower then normal. Our CA, InCommon/Comodo has been inundated with requests. Please plan on delays in obtaining certificates. Current delays are a couple hours but could get longer. Additional information about heartbleed can be found here: http://heartbleed.com/

For more information, please contact Secure Certificates (certificates@psu.edu).
