i don't have Checkpoint, so I can't check it first hand. But the
certificate was changed recently. If I remember right, it was the same
vendor. But from what I know of Checkpoint they use a limited set of
root certificates for their SSL functions, so its possible that they
only included the very specific old certificate we used.

SSL Certificates expires every 1-2 years, so we do have to install new
certificates from time to time.

While I am on the topic of Checkpoint:

We never got the part all figured out that would allow you to send logs
to DShield with checkpoint directly. Checkpoint wrote a module for it,
but its configuration wasn't all that great (text file, which you have
to remember to update whenever you change your rules). So this part is
not working.
