Any updates? Starting to look into openssl if this is will be down another week. Have multiple expired certs I cannot renew. Let me know if I should be watching another status page or if this is acknowledged elsewhere. Thanks!

Currently CACert web site is not working (error code SEC_ERROR_OCSP_OLD_RESPONSE), CRL is not updating, certificates can not be renewed. Please any one write something somewhere about the state and when it will probably be fixed, current silence is really a problem.

I tried to contact the critical admin (unfortunately there is only one left) but received no response yet the issue is assigned to him.

@dastrath: if you read this please give a status update

As reported on the support mailing list: It seems that the signing server is down. Since there is no network access to the signing server a visit to the hosting site is necessary. This is currently prevented by SARS2-Covid19 limitations

I'm aware of the issue, but (Ted wrote) there are some restrictions currently due to Cronona/Covid19.

As soon as there is no risk for CAcert and datacenter personal our top priority action will be to activate the signer again.

Hi there

I have the same problem, I cannot renew certificates and generate new ones, which is affecting my systems.
