Many MIT personal web certificates are set to expire on July 31 and must be renewed by users.
Certificates obtained between September 1999 and June 18, 2000 will expire on July 31. To check the expiration date of your MIT personal certificate, go to http://web.mit.edu/is/help/cert/certsexp.html and follow the instructions.
Renewal of personal certificates is not automatic. If your personal certificate expires on July 31, renew as soon as possible. Go to the certificates at MIT web site and click on the link "Get MIT Personal Certificate." This will assure continued access to MIT secure web applications such as the Benefits Office, CaseTracker, ECAT, Roles, SAPweb and WebSIS. Certificates obtained after June 18, 2000 are valid for 365 days or until July 31, 2001, whichever comes first.
If you have problems with or questions about certificates, contact Information Systems' Business Liaison Team at x2-1177 or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
