Certificate Expiration Dates


29/03/2006

Have you ever had a certificate expire and COREid components stop functioning on you?

 Once you figured out that it was a certificate you were like, “oh-oh, there might be a few more expiring in the next few minutes, hours, days, etc.” This is one of those things that us mere mortals re-learn how to do once a year and then promptly re-forget immediately afterwards.

The openssl tool installed alongside each COREid component can be used to determine the valid dates for a certificate. The following example examines a self signed COREid certificate (“simple mode”) . The same example holds true for all COREid components: Identity Server, Access Server, WebPass, WebGate and Access Manager (frequently installed alongside WebGate).
