TRIUMF Certificate Authority

TRIUMF users should install the root certificate for the TRIUMF certificate authority (CA) in their browser on TRIUMF desktop machines. Please follow the links below.

(You may, if you wish, install this certificate on home PCs, or on machines at other institutions where authorized.)

Quick Installation:

Viewing the certificate of a certified website such as https://andrew.triumf.ca/nimda/ should now show "verified by TRIUMF", as per this screenshot or this one

Why Bother

TRIUMF requires that passwords and other sensitive information entered in Web pages be protected with SSL - otherwise eavesdroppers can see them on the wireless LAN. Installing our own root certificate gets rid of these security alerts every time we commission a new server.

By completing this installation, you acknowledge that you trust TRIUMF Computing Services to verify the identity of TRIUMF servers, personnel and software providers.
