LutherNet Security Certificate

Luther Seminary uses its own Certificate of Authority to provide secure connections across the Internet. To effectively use this system, you need to install the Root Certificate. The instructions below are for installing the secure certificate in your browser. This is already done for you on all campus computers. If you do not install the certificate as detailed below you can still accept the certificate for the web site, but you may receive a security certificate or warning prompt each time you revisit the web site.
