Equifax Workforce Solutions we will be updating the SSL certificates for the following B2B, verifier, and TCI endpoints and the dates indicated:
 
    Lower Environments: 5/15/2018
        test.btwob.talx.com
        test.ofx.talx.com
        test.ofx2.talx.com
        test.ofx4.talx.com

        ofx2.talx.com

        ofx4.talx.com
 
This update involves renewing the certificates as well as changing our Public Certificate Authority from Symantec/VeriSign to DigiCert. While this change should not have any effect on currently issued Client Certificates, it could affect the initial connection to the endpoint (before client certificates are requested) if customers do not have the DigiCert Global Root CA chain installed on their servers.

DigiCert_Global_Root_CA (Root)
Valid to: November 09, 2031
Serial: 08:3B:E0:56:90:42:46:B1:A1:75:6A:C9:59:91:C7:4A
