WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Wildcard *.fnal.gov SSL certificates will expire on March 21. If you manage a server that has a Wildcard *.fnal.gov certificate, you must request and install a new certificate to avoid a disruption in service.
WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?
Wildcard *.fnal.gov certificates will expire on March 21.
WHAT IS THE IMPACT TO YOU?
- System administrators and web administrators should renew their certificates before their current certificates expire.
- Computing has purchased a two-year certificate, which will be distributed to verified system administrators upon request.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
You must request a new certificate for each server you manage; it is a security violation to use one certificate on multiple servers.
- To request a new certificate, you will need a Certificate Signing Request. If you do not already have a Certificate Signing Request, visit DigiCert’s support website to generate one.
- Once you have a Certificate Signing Request, go to the Service Now Request Catalog and fill out the Website Certificate form, which is linked here. You must be logged in to Service Now to access the form.
- If you have any questions regarding this message, contact the Service Desk.
