Planned Update to World Community Grid's Security Certificates
24 Jul 2017   

Summary
We will be updating our security certificates on Tuesday, July 25 at 19:00 UTC.

Update: Our security certificates have now been updated.

Date of outage:  Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Reason for outage: Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates are used to encrypt communications between volunteers' web browsers and our servers, and between the software client and our servers. SSL certificates must be renewed periodically, and we are therefore updating our current certificates.

Expected start time (UTC): 19:00 UTC

Expected end time (UTC): 19:30 UTC

Impact on volunteers: You should only experience a 1-2 second outage that occurs twice while we switch between primary and backup load balancers.

If you need assistance, please post in the BOINC Agent Support forum.

Thank you to everyone for your patience as we complete this important update.
