• Software 2.75.0 and below do not verify CAP message digital signatures as is now required by Part 11.56(c).
• Software v2.76.0 – v2.76.2 provides basic message digital signature verification that the message is correctly signed by the embedded certificate.
• Software v2.76.3+ both verifies that the message is correctly signed by the embedded certificate as well as checking certificate validity.
• The previous Federal Bridge CA 2016 certificate expires on 11.8.2019. To ensure continued full validation of digital signatures, users with software v2.76.3+ should install the new Federal Bridge CA 2016 certificate expiring 10.28.2020.
• Upgrades from software v2.75.0 and below to v2.76.0+ require a $200 upgrade fee which includes new software, certificate update, and remote installation by a Gorman-Redlich technician.
• Users with W10 and up-to-date W7 systems should continue to successfully receive alerts once IPAWS begins using TLS1.2-only on the alert feeds.
