Create InCommon Certificates


The Division of Information Technology (DIT) migrated to the InCommon Certificate Service called Sectigo Certificate Manager. Our previous certificate provider was Digicert. This change is required due to a change in the terms of the agreement with the previous provider.

Your existing certificates through Digicert are still valid and can be managed through Digicert. However, you are invited to log in to Sectigo Certificate Manager through InCommon Identity Management
