InCommon Certificate Service Announced

Post date: Apr 28, 2010 12:37:22 PM

Internet2 and InCommon announced the availability of the InCommon Certificate Service at the Spring 2010 Internet2 Member Meeting. The InCommon Certificate Service will provide the U.S. higher education community with unlimited server and personal certificates at a low, fixed fee. This new service is modeled on the successful TERENA Certificate Service in Europe. Initially, authentication to the InCommon Certificate Service will not rely on the InCommon SAML Federation, in contrast to the CILogon Service which will issue certificates based on InCommon federated, campus-based authentication. CILogon project staff will continue to work collaboratively with InCommon to ensure that the certificate services available to InCommon members meet the variety of requirements of our community.
