Save certificate into file cert.txt
postgres_get_server_cert.py example.com:5432 | openssl x509 > cert.txt
Check certificate dates:
postgres_get_server_cert.py example.com:5432 | openssl x509 -noout -dates
Check full certificate:
postgres_get_server_cert.py example.com:5432 | openssl x509 -noout -text
