Certificate Service Overview

"Our cost saving is roughly in the $65-$75K range annually, compared to our previous certificate provider. That's a 4-5x return on investment."

Private Label Certificate Authorities - Intermediate CAs with campus-specific profiles and practice statements are available to members who desire this functionality for an additional cost.


Any higher education institution with its primary location in the United States, and qualifying for a primary domain name in .edu, may subscribe. Not-for-profit regional RENs (Research and Education Networks) in the United States may also subscribe. Subscribers must be InCommon participants or join InCommon.
