WCU Certificate Services

WCU has it's own certificate authority for websites that are not commonly used, but require encryption to secure the information being transferred between users and web services.

Below is a link to the certificate server.  In order for you to not recieve an error message from home stating that the SSL Certificate Authority is unknown, you can install the CA information on your local computer.  When you click on the link, you will be asked to log in.  Use your campus username and password in the following format:  wcupanet\rmcdonald

Once you get into the site, you will see a link on the top that says "Install This CA Certificate Chain".  Go ahead and click on this link in order to install the CA.   Once that is done, you can close your web browser.

WCUPA.NET Certificate Server:

Computers on campus do not need to click on this link.  It was already done via the network.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at Frank Piscitello.
