Server certificates

To ensure that your computer is communicating with the correct server and that the traffic cannot be intercepted or altered you need a server certificate. Server certificates come in various shapes and are usually installed in Web servers, mail servers, etc.

Apply for a certificate

Step 1: Delegation application

In order to be able to apply for a server certificate, you need to have a delegation approval from the Head of Department of your department. Fill in the application form Delegeringsansökan (delegation application) with the names of the person or persons who can order a server certificate. Fill out the form an send it to certifikat@ki.se. if you already have a delegation from your Head of Department, you don't need to fill in the form.

The delegation application form (Delegeringsansökan) supports digital/electronic signatures and there is room for multiple signatures. In order for the application to be approved, all signatures need to be digital/electronic. If you do not have a personal certificate, you need to print out the form and sign it manually. Scan the form with the signatures and send it to certifikat@ki.se.
