The “CERT @unitn” service manages the computer security incidents involving, at all levels, users and hosts connected with the university network.

Digital certificates for servers

The SSL certificates, at the basis of the HTTPS protocol, certify the ownership of a website and allow the encrypted communication between the browser and the server hosting its website. They must be used when the website exchanges confidential information when the client (like the password or the credit card number).

Digital signature

A digital signature allows a user to electronically sign their documents (PDF or other file extensions) by providing the public key of the certificate authority that issued the digital certificate.

The Information and communication technology management requires the digital certificate, which is necessary to check the digital certificate owner's digital signature.
