Stranger called out of the blue offering to help us renew our SSL certificate. It was dodgy, and I'd paid for renewal back in May. Apparently never got the contractor to install the renewed certs.

It expires "Thursday, July 22, 2021" so does that mean it stops working at midnight tonight, or do I have until tomorrow night to get this straightened out?

The guy who called claimed to be from an outfit called SSL Guru, fwiw.


Make a copy of the certificate and use OpenSSL to doubke-check the time and date of the expiry.

openssl x509 -noout -enddate ./my_cert

@ParadeGrotesque I was able to dig into it with Firefox and see 16:48GMT on July 22., so 18hours-ish.
