The DeiC certificat service provices users at schools, research and education institutions with certificates. DeiC offers three kinds of certificates: Server certificates, personal certificates, and code signing certificates.
A server certificate ensures the identity of the server you are connected to. It also enables encryption. A server with a DeiC certificate is safe to visit.
When a user's browser visits a server with a certificate from DeiC, the browser recognizes and trusts the certificate. Users are not presented with a dialog box where they must decide whether to trust the server.
For questions or requests for further information please contact the DeiC certificate service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The DeiC personal certificates allow researchers to access national and international computing facilities across the internet. The digital signature in the certificate is trusted by the Interoperable Global Trust Federation (IGTF) and all standard browsers.
Once the certificate is installed, a researcher may join international eScience networks and access remote supercomputing facilites via infrastructures such as the European Grid Infrastructure and the Nordic Data Grid Facility.
For questions or requests for further information about personal certificates please contact the DeiC certificate service at email@example.com.
Code signing certificates
A code signing certificate allows a software developer to sign their code. The signature is proof that the code has not been altered by a third party. It also proves the identity of the developer.
For questions or requests for further information about code signing certificates please contact the DeiC certificate service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
