CIS has made an arrangement with InCommon for issuing digital certificates (cert). A cert is an electronic file containing personal information about its owner as well as the owner's public key, used to establish a web site owner's credentials when transactions on the Internet must be secured. Requests are managed by the office of Computing Accounts and Passwords (CAP).
Submit a CIS request (http://brown.edu/go/helpticket). Click the 'See More Categories' button first, then choose 'Business Systems' -> 'Digital Certificate Request'. You will be prompted to include the following information in your request:
- the "common name" (i.e. the name of the server)
- the type of cert (SSL, Intranet SSL, Wildcard SSL, or Multi-Domain SSL)
- the server software ( Apache, HP, Microsoft IIS, Oracle, Red Hat, etc)
- the term of the cert (one, two, or three years)
- the CSR
If you need any support on the filling out of the ticket, please contact the CAP directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 3-4357. If you do not have Remedy access, you may also contact the Help Desk to file the ticket.
Free (cost is covered by CIS)
