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).
Request this Service
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.
If you frequently need to generate SSL certificates we can also provide an InCommon account of your own for self-service access to certificate requests. Please contact the CAP, as above, for more information.
