Getting started

To request an SSL certificate, follow these steps:

  1. Register your hostname in DNS
  2. Generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request). (see instruction)
    Note: The service only supports 2048-bit keys. CSRs signed with 1024-bit keys will not be accepted.
  3. Store your key in a safe and secure location.
  4. Complete the online request form. The request will be forwarded to the Cyber Security Coordinator of requested department for reference.

We’ll send you the certificate through email once the certificate has been issued.


The process for certificate renewal is exactly the same as for requesting a new certificate. User is required to resubmit the CSR using the online request form.
