Web certificates allow for trusted and secure connections with certain web sites at MIT. For example, WebSIS (the MIT Student Information System) is only accessible to those with MIT Site Certificates and Personal Certificates installed in their web browsers. Please note that you cannot get web certificates without first obtaining your Kerberos ID.
Web certificates are tied to particular web browsers. So if you were, for example, to use Safari, Firefox and Opera web browsers on your Macintosh, you would need install certificates for each of these browsers. (Chrome and Safari are exceptions in that they share certificates.)
