SSL Certificates

Several web and other network services from the Department of Physics are protected by HTTPS/SSL. We employ three different types of SSL certificates: all public websites and often used network service use a commercial certificate and hence should work on all browsers, mail clients, etc. without any security warning. Other internal sites that don't require a commercial certification are protected by either CAcert or certificates signed with the ISG D-PHYS Root CA Certificate.

To stop annoying and irritating dialogs, you can install the appropriate root certificates in your browser:

Proxy

In rare cases you may need to configure a proxy to get access to some websites.
