    You can only register a .ac.uk or .sch.uk domain for the certificate. This is based on providing secure access under the NEN.

    I emailed them asking if we could get a certificate and they said no we would have to pay? Our LEA uses JANET for sure

    Re: Free SSL Certificates for JANET connected schools

    You, as a school, cannot get a certificate. You, as a school that buys in connectivity to JANET through your LA, has to get your LA to get a certificate for you, but it seems that the LA can only do this if they own your .sch.uk domain name.

    I am not saying that there are hoops here ...

    Ok ... I am saying that there are hoops here and that there are enough to break the Hula record too!

    I have asked again for clarification and also passed it onto my RBC to get clarification from them too. I will get an answer about the procedure eventually.

    Better get your request in now for your free 3 year certificate before they start charging!!

    Yeah - that was announced a couple of months ago - isn't it about £50 per cert per request - even if it has SANs
    Think a Wildcard is a bit more pricey though...

    Does anyone know if you can still get this through the emPSN?

    The procedure was to work through your LA, but theoretically it is still possible ... give emPSN a shout and ask.

    I'm on it. Cheers!

    Hopefully somebody will know the answer and I won't be left running round the houses.

    https://community.ja.net/groups/jane.../charging-faqs - Free SSL certificates extended to 3rd June 2013!
    Might be useful to apply for a wildcard ssl certificate if have some projects coming up!

    Internal Server Name SSL Certificate Issuance After 2015 - internal hostnames/ip's to be phased out of public certificates.

    Yep I managed to get one from Janet via the SWGfL last week for one of our servers that had it's self signed certificate expire. A nice free one for the 3 years and it only look 24 hrs from initial request so much improved compared to the older system I used with them last year that took a couple of weeks.

    I recently obtained a 2 year wildcard certificate for free (2 years) using ipsCA. They still issue free for education. Took 24 hours from request to receive
