Overview of Server Certificates
UW-Madison is a participant in the InCommon Certificate Service, which entitles campus staff to unlimited server (SSL) certificates at no cost to them.
Please note, the default is to issue certificates for only those servers under the wisc.edu, and wisconsin.edu domain names. We can go through the DCV (Domain Control Validation) process to issue certificates for other domains if UW Madison is the administrative manager for that domain. Please contact email@example.com to discuss. Alternatively, certificates can be purchased directly from Comodo, another commercial certificate authority, or for auto-renewing certificates for free with a service like LetsEncrypt or the AWS Certificate Manager, for example.
