UW Digital ID - Restoring a UW Digital ID
This document explains what to do with your UW Digital ID if you’ve gotten a new computer or otherwise need a copy of your UW Digital ID.
If you need to retrieve your UW Digital ID (for example, you've gotten a new computer and would like to install your certificate on the new machine), there are a couple options for you to take, depending on your specific situation.
I have my certificate backed up in another location (email, Google Drive, Box, etc.).
I don't have my certificate, but I have another computer with the certificate installed.
I don't have my certificate and I don't have another computer with the certificate installed.
You will need to contact UW Digital ID Administration at firstname.lastname@example.org to reset your certificate request. The administrators will reset your certificate request, which involves revoking (i.e. expiring) your old certificate and issuing you a brand new certificate. You can follow the instructions above to install the certificate on your new computer.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the UW Digital ID team at email@example.com.
