Because of the “Shutdown”, SSL certificates have not been renewed and some sites are no longer accessible

In the United States, given the “shutdown”, the US administration did not consider the renewal of SSL certificates (Secure Socket Layer) as a priority. As a result, many government sites (defined by the .GOV top-level domain) are no longer accessible. This is particularly the case of several sites of the judicial administration.
SSL certificates secure communications between web servers and browsers. In the absence of such certificates, most browsers limit or even block access to unsecured sites.
