Adafruit IO SSL certificate change preventing connection.

by bwees on Tue Jul 07, 2020 9:22 am

I have an esp8266 project that refuses to connect to adafruit.io staring yesterday at 6:30. This is consistent with other users on your Discord. From what we have found out, a new SSL certificate had been issued yesterday causing many devices to not connect. One can fix this with the FirmwareUpdate sketch in the Wifi101 library but, that is only for special adafruit boards. I am trying to figure out why no one was notified of this change and/or why this new certificate was not tested before being put in a production environment where many projects are dependant on it. I now do not feel that adafruit.io is a good platform to use if it becomes unreliable with no fix for a supported use case and/or a notification that there are issues with this new certificate. If you have any news on the situation and /or a possible fix, I would love to know.

Thanks
