Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)

A Public Key Infrastructure is an enabling, foundational technology that allows organizations to build security solutions that leverage a common trust. The PKI provides an organization with the facility to create, distribute, and manage keys used by computers and users. These keys can be used for business functions such as sending secure email, encrypting data on disks to protect against loss or theft, and securing communications, such as with virtual private networks (VPNs).  LSU A&M has chosen to utilize the InCommon Certificate Service for its PKI. The InCommon Certificate Service, created by and for the higher education community, provides unlimited SSL/TLS and client certificates to the university.

To request a certificate please visit the PKI Self Service Portal.
