Treasury.gov to be refreshed…

Important Technical Notice

 

Important Technical Announcement for Users of OFAC’s Sanctions List Data Files:

Per Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandate, the Treasury Department will be implementing HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) headers on the Treasury.gov website on Thursday, January 12 during an evening maintenance window. There is no anticipated downtime associated with this change; however, the change affects multiple domains and sub-domains, and will force users to the HTTPS site, as opposed to allowing browsers to redirect from HTTP to HTTPS.  This has the potential to impact scripts that users may have developed to poll Treasury.gov for data.
 
In addition to this change, the Treasury Department will also be updating the HTTPS cert it uses for the Treasury.gov domain during the aforementioned maintenance window.   Users may have to reinstall the root certificate for the site if they experience connection problems.  The root certificate (the G3 certificate) can found at the following URL:
 
 
Please contact OFAC technical support at 1-800-540-6322 Option #8 or O_F_A_C@treasury.gov with any questions that you may have about this change.
