Problem claiming personal digital certificates
Under Investigation

The problem continues.
We’ve attributed the issue to an upstream change from InCommon and are working with them to resolve it.

Currently, there are only 3 users who are waiting to finalize the claiming of their certificates.

We’ll be working to write a patch to address this change and will keep the affected users updated.

We’ll also circle back when this is addressed.

Users are having issues claiming new personal digital certificates via https://certificates.security.utexas.edu.
The Information Security Office is actively investigating the problem.

An update will be provided tomorrow morning.

Please note that all existing personal digital certificates will function as expected.
also, there are no issues with creating server certificates.
