Getting Certificates Instructions - Apple Safari / Keychain

Obtaining CSAIL Client Certificate for your Browser

Download CSAIL Master CA Certificate to your computer and proceed to open the master.cer file.
  • Keychain Access will load and ask where to import the certificate. Choose "System" under keychain and add the certificate. The system will prompt you to provide your OSX password.
  • You may need to provide your password twice (first to install the certificate, then to trust it).

Obtaining CSAIL Client Certificates for your Browser

After installing your authority certificates, you have to obtain client certificates for your browser. This allows our network to identify you.
  • Click here to open the request page.
  • From the drop-down menu on that page, select the longest key length available.
  • Click the submit button.
  • The page will be loading ("Contacting") for a short delay, after which a file will be downloaded.
  • From your Downloads folder, double-click the "request.p7s" file to finish adding the certificate (to the "login" keychain if prompted).
