DEFCON web certificate expires – what’s going on?

Category : security

I just wanted to check whether the Agenda has been updated … well, I guess it wasn’t. uses HSTS so it’s pretty tricky to access the web even with a “red bar”.

We are to launch a tool to keep an eye on all certificates. I was told that it’s a hard sell and I’m being a kind of silly for being nervous I missed a server or two and our infrastructure would collapse.

I guess it’s always good to have a fresh graph with expiration dates.

The pity is that we are a few days late with our service launch. Yes, one should stick to ones deadlines 🙁 Well, if you want a free weekly KPI about all your certificates – please check in a week’s time.

The landing page for to launch very soon
