#61 closed defect (fixed)

get certs signed by a real CA

Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: web Keywords:

At Monday's meeting, the Board approved a $900 allocation for this purpose.

Reading the minutes, I wanted to make sure that you were aware that in at least some situations, mitcert@… will generate GeoTrust? signed certs ... Assuming you haven't already, it's probably worth investigating this possibility before going out and buying from some random vendor.

Probably we should follow this suggestion.
