SSL Certificate Suspension

Due to recent claims of a security breach, GlobalSign (the company that we get our SSL certs from) has temporarily ceased issuing new certificates while they investigate.  No new or renewal certificates will be available until they lift the suspension.  We will be monitoring the situation and let campus know when anything changes.  Another company, DigiNotar, was recently breached by the same hacker, causing all of their certificates to become un-trusted.  As a result, we have to take this threat seriously.
