InCommon Certificate Service
Unlimited Certificates for One Low Fee
Includes unlimited certificates for one fixed annual fee, including SSL, extended validation, client (personal), and code signing certificates. All of the domains you own or control (.edu, .net, .org., .com, and others) are covered.
"The program paid for itself with just one central department that purchased 200 certs a year (at $28k). That department now picks up the $15k cost for the entire campus. A win, win, win."
