Jisc’s Certificate Service is due for re-procurement in 2021 and as part of this process we want to get your views. We are inviting those who use the service to take part in a workshop on Tuesday 24th September at Jisc’s offices in London. During the day we will be asking for your feedback on the existing service and provide you with the opportunity to discuss any additional functionality that would enhance the service. The workshop will start at 10:30 and finish at 15:00 – lunch will be provided.

This section contains further information about how to request and obtain S/MIME certificates, and further help on how to install and configure S/MIME to work on users' email clients. S/MIME certificates, also called "Personal certificates", enable users to digitally sign emails and optionally to encrypt email messages. Sending a digitally signed email means the recipient is able to verify that the email has been sent from the sender's account. Digitally signing emails can therefore help reduce the chances of users falling foul to phishing attacks.
