Digital Certificates

Digital Certificates Home

A personal digital certificate is like a digital ID card that resides on your computer. At UVA, your personal digital certificate allows you to:

  • access UVA's encryted cavalier wireless network;
  • authenticate through NetBadge using the faster and more secure digital certificate option; and
  • install and use the Cisco VPN (UVA Anywhere).

Personal digital certificates are valid for 14 months. Approximately one month prior to the expiration date, you will receive a notification reminder that you have a certificate about to expire. When this happens, simply get a new certificate as described below.
