InCommon and Comodo's Unique Partnership for Higher Education

In just the first year of a unique partnership, InCommon and Comodo have issued tens of thousands of certificates to more than 120 colleges and universities across the United States. InCommon, operated by Internet2, provides the U.S. research and higher education with a framework of trust for the safe sharing of online resources. Comodo is a leading certificate authority and Internet security organization, providing businesses and consumers with a variety of security and trust services. The partnership between InCommon and Comodo CA Ltd. offers U.S. higher education institutions with unlimited certificates for one annual fee, providing substantial cost and overhead savings. Subscribers may issue unlimited Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates, including extended validation (EV), client (personal) certificates, and code signing certificates for all of the domains they own or control such as .edu, .org, .net, .com and others.

By offering unlimited SSL certificates, we've provided the potential for campuses to significantly reduce their certificate-related expenses," said John Krienke, chief operating officer of InCommon. "Now that we have rolled out client (personal) certificates, we've set the stage for campuses to more easily adopt important services like signed email and second-factor authentication. Economics are no longer a limitation for certificate possibilities.

The InCommon Certificate Service is a non-profit, transparently operated service. Internet2 members receive a 25 percent discount. For more information, including a fee schedule and subscriber agreement, see www.incommon.org/cert.
