Non-profit, member-based IT support for research & educational institutions


CREN is now offering an expanded set of digital certificate services to meet the different needs of campuses:

    Institutional Certificates
  • These CREN-Signed certificates are for institutions issuing certificates for their campus community in the range of 10 or more web server certificates and for more than 500-1000 client certificates.

    Web Server Certificates
  • These certificates are for campuses to use for securing web servers supporting a whole range of campus web applications.

    Client Certificates
  • CREN has an internal CREN.NET service equivalent to a campus certificate issuing application. A registration contact at a campus validates /approves individuals and CREN issues the certificates. These certificates can be used to communicate with vendors, agencies, etc.

Now, all institutions can come to CREN for digital certificates to secure plans to secure data exchanges on campuses.
