NCBI has scheduled the next round of HTTPS tests, following up from the initial tests performed on September 15.
The schedule for these tests is as follows (all times are EDT):
You may have heard that NCBI, along with the rest of the Federal Government, is switching to HTTPS-only access. To help prepare for this, NCBI is beginning a series of tests. During these tests, all traffic to NCBI will be redirected from HTTP to HTTPS to simulate our system’s behavior once the HTTPS transition is complete.
The first test will be Thursday, September 15, from 8:00-9:00 AM EDT.
