  • The site validation process for the or domains is completed.
  • There is no cost charged back to the individual department or division for most certificate products.
  • Notification of imminent certificate expiry is provided at least two weeks before the expiry date.
  • Information Security adds a departmental contact vetting process to ensure authorization to use server certificates.
  • Automatic certificate renewal (ACME) is available for this service.
