The InCommon Certificate Service provides unlimited certificates for US higher education for one fixed annual fee. This includes SSL, extended validation, client (personal), and code signing certificates.The program covers all of the domains you own or control (.edu, .net, .org, .com, and others).

The fixed annual fee and comprehensive coverage takes the guess work out of budgeting.

Any higher education institution with its primary location in the United States, and qualifying for a primary domain name in .edu, may subscribe. Not-for-profit regional research and education networking organizations in the United States may also subscribe. Subscribers must be InCommon participants or join InCommon.
