I'm a member of the Gridcoin community, and we're currently looking into providing better security for our crunchers.
According to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=boinc.gorlaeus.net&s=126.96.36.199, this site is using a self-signed certificate. Are there any plans to remedy this in the near future?
There's a chance that not updating the SSL cert may lead to this project being removed from the project whitelist, which means it will no longer be crunched by the Gridcoin team.
