[Micronet] CalNet Active Directory PKI Service Changes
On Monday August 2nd, 2010 the CalNetAD Team will begin migrating the internal PKI environment used by the Campus Active Directory to a new Windows Server 2008 PKI environment. For end users of certificates issued by this PKI hierarchy this change means that a new root certificate will need to be trusted in order to provide a seamless experience.
During the period of time in which both hierarchies are in place, it may be necessary to trust both the old and the new root Certificate Authority (CA) certificates. CalNetAD member workstations and servers already trust the old environment's root CA, and will automatically trust the new root CA after August 2nd. For instructions on how to manually trust the new environment (for non-member systems), please see the KB article below:
In addition to this migration, and in conjunction with the adoption of the InCommon-Comodo CA Pilot program, we are removing the ability to request SSL certificates from the CalNetAD PKI web enrollment servers beginning on Monday, August 16th, 2010. For more information on the InCommon-Comodo service, which is replacing both CalNetAD PKI SSL certificates and the IST VeriSign SSL offering, please visit the pilot website:
