JANET(UK) Announces the new JANET Certificate Service

Posted on Friday, 20 November 2009

JANET(UK) is pleased to announce the launch of the new JANET Certificate Service.

The service will offer a range of new features, through a simple online interface. This will enable the automated processing of certificate requests along with the ability to monitor and manage new certificates that are issued. This includes certificate revocation and automated alerts when these certificates are close to their expiry date. The online interface will also allow federated access for nominated contacts.

Existing customers can take advantage of these additional features by choosing to migrate to the new service. Invitations to migrate will be sent out over the coming weeks. These changes will not affect the high levels of service provided to customers with existing certificates. JANET(UK) will continue to absorb the costs of providing this service to its customers. The existing service will cease issuing certificates on the 18th December 2009.

JANET(UK) is also pleased to be able to announce that all GlobalSign certificates, issued as part of the original JANET Server Certificate Service, will now continue to be valid for their stated lifespan. This means that organisations in possession of certificates, issued as part of this service, will not need to replace these certificates by April 2010.

A Briefing Document is also available which provides additional information on the new service at
