Irony: TSA an "unknown entity"


The security certificate for the contact forms on the TSA website in the US is invalid. Firefox throws up warnings about an unsigned and untrusted certificate. Somehow I find this really funny.

Hey, Blogger Bob here from the TSA Blog. I share your post with our IT team and the problem has been fixed.

A simple "new" step was buried in the instructions and was missed.

"Please note that in order to deploy your SSL certificate, you will also need to install an L1B Chain Certificate to the 2048 Root….”

This step was not taken and that's why you received the warning. All should be well now.

Thanks,

Blogger Bob
