< Grid certificates

Due to brain damage at Google, you can no longer use Google Chromium for getting a Digicert certificate. Firefox stil works. And possible Safari and Internet Explorer. We have reports that Microsoft Edge doesn't work.

To request a Digicert grid certificate

  1. Go to https://digicert.com/sso
  2. Type the first characters of your university (or similar) and then select the Identity Provider to use for login.

  3. Login at your home university.
  4. Select the Grid Premium product.

  6. Press "Request Certificate".
  7. Your certificate is generated and should be automatically imported into your browser.
