Need to renew your certificate?

The procedure in sending a renewal request to renew your certificate is exactly the same for personal and host certificate. You do not need to revisit your RA operator to renew your certificate. However, your RA Operator will check if you are still eligible for a UK e-Science certificate, and hence your RA Operator may contact you via email.

You can renew your certificate in one of two ways:

  • If you prefer a browser interface for your certificate management and you have your current certificate in your browser then please go to the CA Portal and follow the instructions for renewal. Note that this works on a far wider variety of browsers than our previous web interface.
  • If you prefer the CertWizard then this can also be accessed through the CA Website.

Whichever method you use, the server will then queue your renewal request for your RA to approve. There is NO need to visit your RA. You will receive an e-mail when the certificate is available to download.
