SSL glitches

2014-12-18

in Geek stuff, Internet matters, Security

I recently updated the SSL certificate used to provide encrypted access to this site via HTTPS. Chances are, nothing sensitive is passing between my server and your computer. Running the site this way by default does, however, increase the overall volume of encrypted traffic on the web, which may hamper some ubiquitous surveillance efforts.

In any case, if you see warnings from your browser about this site’s encryption, let me know. I am hoping they will clear on their own as various caches update.

Here’s the latest from DreamHost technical support:

I’m sorry for the issue. I’ve just gone ahead and reconfigured the
intermediate/CA cert so you should see the secure site working correctly
within just a few minutes.

Clearing your browser cache in the mean time would likely be helpful as
well.
