How do I obtain a SSL certificate?
Only University faculty or staff members may request SSL certificates.
To obtain an SSL certificate for your server:
- Please visit the SSL/TLS Certificate Service Page to get started
- If you haven't ordered your digital certificate, please visit our SSL/TLS Certificate WebStore and place an order for an “SSL Sectigo Certificate”
- Submit your SSL/TLS Certificate Activation Request
Primary contact email address (must be a University of Illinois faculty/staff or department email address).
For business continuity, we suggest using the address of a mailing list or helpdesk system.
You may submit multiple addresses: Examples: NetID@uic.edu email@example.com, NetID@uic.edu
We only offer 1-year SSL/TLS digital certificates.
We can only process requests for domains ending in “.uic.edu”; no local domains (“httpx://my-server”) nor IP addresses.
All second-level domains (example.uic.edu) must be approved by the Chief Information Security and Privacy Officer.
