AWS Service Update – Service is operating normally: [RESOLVED] Certificate Issuance Delays

Between 3:05 PM and 6:11 PM PST we experienced increased delays in validation and issuance for DNS validated domains in the US-EAST-1 Region. The issue has been resolved and the service is operating normally. Certificates waiting for DNS validation which have proper CNAME entries in DNS will validate within the next 3 hours.
