- The lowest level trust root of letsencrypt, the "DST_Root_CA_X3", has expired on September 30th 2021.
- An intermediate CA "ISRG Root X1" which expires 2035 should now be the final root of trust.
- The letsencrypt setup returns both in a chain already ensuring that both are looked at and honored.
- openssl 1.0.2 and older did not handle this situation correctly, and would report the expired status
- This has been caused by the expiry of DST_Root_CA_X3 only.
