You an Usertrust chain expired since 2020 and the Gandi intermediate since last spring.

Kind regards


#1 Updated by Holger Just 7 months ago

The provided intermediate certificate is the "Gandi Standard SSL CA 2" certificate. Its valid until 2024-09-11, i.e. about three years from now.

The provided chain does indeed send additional (expired) certificates. However, those should generally be ignored by your TLS client library as it can use its own trust store to validate the chain against its own (local) version of the "USERTrust RSA Certification Authority" certificate. The one shipped with Chrome and Firefox is valid until 2038-01-18. Here, the clients are able to verify a complete trusted certificate chain.

With that being said, some older TLS client libraries (most prominently OpenSSL < 1.1.1) do not attempt to try to validate alternate chains and abort the TLS connection. To fix this, you could (and should) try to update the TLS client library used by your wget.
