    Government shutdown: TLS certificates not renewed, many websites down


    Government shutdown: TLS certificates not renewed, many websites are down.

    More than 80 TLS certificates used by US government websites have expired so far without being renewed, leaving some websites inaccessible to the public.

    NASA, the US Department of Justice, and the Court of Appeals are just some of the US government agencies currently impacted, according to Netcraft.
    Government websites with expired TLS certificates but which didn't implement HSTS show an HTTPS error in users' browsers, but this error can be bypassed to access the site via HTTP.

    Nevertheless, visitors are warned not to log in or perform any sensitive operations on these sites, as traffic and authentication credentials aren't encrypted and could be intercepted by threat actors.

    Visiting and browsing content is fine, but users should also be aware that all websites will not be actively managed and there won't be employees on hand to process requests or update sites with the latest correct information.

    I went to the National Archives and was told because of the shutdown it wasn't working.

    Works just fine for me so does FBI.gov and DOJ.GOv the last two said that the sites will not be updated and The DOJ does have a contingency plan.
