The secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate chain for the Comptroller’s production mainframe is changing Sunday, April 5, because the previous Comodo CA certificates are expiring. Agencies must add the new certificate before April 5. Do not delete the current certificate.
This impacts anyone going to mvs1.cpa.state.tx.us using SSL, notably (but not exclusively) file transfer protocol secure (FTPS) transfers.
The certificate is currently available for download. See Comptroller’s Mainframe Certificate Changing for more information.
Contact your agency security coordinator (ASC) and technical team with questions about certificate/key installation and configuration. For additional help, contact the Comptroller’s office help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 463-HELP.
