Hi, a recent product alert (sk122612) highlights a problematic which will impact all unix systems in twenty years : we will have reached 2^31 seconds since epoch (January 1, 1970 midnight).

Off course Check Point products and pre-R77.30 Jumbo HF Take_143 are concerned as gaia is UNIX based.

Due to this, Check Point is setting the certificate expiration date to be equal to the maximum Unix epoch time.

Do you know if there is a global reflection of the community regarding this limitation ?
