It was recently brought to my attention that ipsCA offers free 2 year
256 bit SSL certificates for educational institutions (in the .edu
domain). Does anybody have any experience with them? I note that their
root cert is bundled into Firefox, but does anyone know about IE or
Safari? Is there a limit to the number of certificates?
One downside is that the certs won't work with Novell's eDirectory. I
went to the top guru at Novell. He had tried to get them to work, even
talked to IPSCA programmers, but no workie.
