Security certificate service
Customers must use UNINETT as an Internet service provider (i.e.must be connected to the research and education network).
• Server certificates for secure communication with network services
Server certificates authenticate servers and protect communication (https) with the servers. Customers may order certificates for all domains at their disposal, for example.no, .com and .org. The server certificates are valid for up to 3 years. It is possible to be issued certificates with multiple DNS-names, as well as “wildcard” certificates for services.
• Code-signing certificates for signing programming code
EV certificates have the same areas of application as server certificates, except the issuer has a more comprehensive approval process. EV certificates cause the address fields in browsers to turn green, and are usually associated with systems handling financial data, such as online banking systems.
• Personal certificates for authentication of people
Personal certificates are currently being used to authenticate users for international HPC resources (GRID). This service requires a separate registration. Personal certificates may be ordered in a dedicated portal using your Feide username and password.
This service requires that the organization has Internet access via UNINETT.
The service is billed based on the organization's size in terms of number of employees. Service fee applies for an unlimited number of certificates, both server certificates, code signing certificates and personal certificates.
