If you are involved with running a website or web server, you may want to use HTTPS to provide secure, encrypted communications between your website and its users. In order to perform this encryption, an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate must be obtained and installed on your web server. The University provides certificates for all institutional sites (uleth.ca and ulethbridge.ca), as well as for research websites associated with the University. We also coordinate renewal of these certificates on a 1-, 2-, or 3-year basis, depending on term chosen for the initial certificate.
In order to obtain an SSL certificate, you need to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) on your web server. Once you have the CSR, please email it to email@example.com along with the web service technology you are using (i.e. Apache, IIS 6.0, Cisco, etc) and we will be in touch with you to complete the process.
Certificates for uleth.ca and ulethbridge.ca sites are available free of charge. For research sites or non-University sites, we charge for SSL certificates on a cost-recovery basis. (Approx. $107 per certificate per year).
Monday - Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
