Texas A&M University subscribes to the InCommon Certificate Service, which provides unlimited server and client certificates to higher education institutions. The service provides SSL certificates, which secure communications to and from an Internet host and allow systems to verify the host's identity. Comodo, a leading commercial provider of certificates, is the certificate authority for the InCommon Certificate Service.
All domains owned by the university are eligible for this service, including professional societies and athletic sites (.edu, .net, .org, .com). Note: due to the additional steps required, the non-.edu site certificates will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
SSL certificates are provided at no charge to the Texas A&M University campus and is funded by the Office of the Vice President and Chief Information Officer.
Texas A&M IT's Identity and Access Management Team has been designated as the Registration Authority Office for this service and is responsible for overseeing the TAMU (Part 02) certificate service. For more information, visit the Certificates website.
