SSL Certification Announcement

As some of you may have noticed, the SSL certification was down over the weekend.  We had some problems with the renewal taking longer than expected, but it should be back up by tomorrow at the latest.  There was no hacking, nor was any of your information compromised, it was simply an administrative setback.  For those that don’t know, SSL certification is done by a third party to ensure that the security systems in place are up to standards.  No changes were made to the security system, however certification lasts for a specific amount of time before it needs to be renewed.  If you have any questions about this, please contact support@bme.com.

  1. Yep. It’s a pretty expensive scam! You can use “self signed” certificates which are free but browsers still give you the “OMG get me out of here” alert even though there is absolutely no difference between the two. It’s just a company that is able to scam $1000 bucks out of you yearly. They do nothing other than make you send them documents (and I use that term very loosely!!) to “prove” who you are. The hold up was the email address I was using wasn’t my full name @BME.com so that wasn’t enough to verify my identity even though it was the same address used previously.

    STUPID!!
