HEAnet TCS (TERENA Certificate Service)

HEAnet is witnessing a need for server certificates in our own organisation and within the education and research community, mainly due to an increased awareness of the need for encrypted channels and the roll-out of authentication and authorisation middleware.
HEAnet TCS is providing no-cost server certificates vaid for three years to our clients. The server certificates can be used for institution services, including web(HTTPS), email(IMAPS), server authentication and any number of SSL or TLS based services that require trusted certificates.

Further information is available on the website or by emailing
