On the 1st of July 2015 the The GÉANT Trusted Certificate Service (TCS) will officially move from Comodo to the new supplier Digicert.
This space is the home for the new service. The main part of it is dedicated to the wiki where customers can find the description of the service and the relative documents.
Notice that the wiki is intended as a guide on the look-and-feel of the CertCentral portal.

This wiki should not be considered a replacement of the Digicert user guide. For anything more specific or more detailed please refer to the user guide in the Documentation section.
