For system administrators and application developers
The University of Washington maintains this Certificate Authority to facilitate secure communincation between clients and services at the University by issuing IETF X509 client and server certificates to authorized applications. These certificates allow the applications to positively identify themselves and authenticate their peers in a communications network.
Use these pages to request, acquire and manage certificates for your web servers and applications. If you are uncertain if a UW Services CA certificate is right for your application, see our usage guidelines.
