I need to get some SSL certificates for some african country operations
and i can unfortunately not use letsencrypt for this. I was trying to
get a certificate from Swissign for this but for some reason they refuse
issuing certificates to domains for Guinea and Guinea Bissau because
these countries are on their embargo TLD list. It is known that some
individuals from these countries are on a UN embargo list, but thats
also true for some people from Germany or Switzerland or USA. And these
countries are not blocked. In other words, I need another certificate
provider, preferrably not under US control (so not Comodo, Digicert,
Thawte, Symantec, Verisign etc), who can issue multidomain certificates
for .gw, .com.gn, .sl, .io, .com domains.
Anyone have a good hint?

first I hope this is not too off-topic. I'm asking here because this
whole layer-1 world is quite foreign to me, despite having studied
electronics 30 years ago, and I have noticed some people here really
know what this is all about :-)
In short : my house is cabled over ADSL (aerial line). The upgrade to
G.Fast is planned for July, most probably still over the aerial line. I
had serious connectivity issues when it was raining, and had
Swisscom/Cablex replace my aerial line (aluminium+paper, 40+ years old)
by a new shiny big shielded cable, along with all the internal cabling
well-done, direct cabling for the U72, new sockets and cables, etc.
The current "should" speed numbers from Swisscom check-tool are :
Download : 50 Mbit/s au max. au lieu de 200 Mbit/s
Upload : 18 Mbit/s au max. au lieu de 100 Mbit/s
However, when testing my speed, I consistently find DL at 18-19 Mbis/s
and UL at 25-29 Mb/s, with a latency at about 12ms.
I have done the tests with my "real" environment (ADSL bridged-modem,
Unifi USG, etc) and as well with the modem in "home-office" mode, eg
ADSL-router doing the PPPoE by itself, the numbers are very similar. I
used several test-sites and clients, wired and not. Almost always the
Now I'm not sure why my UL is faster than my DL. After helping to have
my line replaced, my provider (Solnet) said all is ok and the problem is
elsewhere... but where ? Why is UL faster than DL, and why not the
50mb/s they say ?
And will it really be better with g.fast, or should I go to UPC, which
I'd rather not have to....
Hints welcome :-)
