How to enroll for a Symantec SSL Trial Certificate

Solution

The Symantec SSL Trial certificate is for use only in testing environments and provides no assurance of your corporate identity to others. The free 30-day ID allows you to test the benefits of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology in a pre-production environment.

To request a Symantec SSL Trial Certificate, please visit the link below:

Note: In order to test the use of a Symantec SSL Trial certificate, you must install a special Symantec Trial Intermediate and Symantec Trial Root CA on the server. The Trial Root must also be installed in each browser that will be used during the testing phase. This is a special step that Symantec has implemented to prevent fraudulent use of trial certificates. When purchasing a production SSL certificate, these additional steps are not necessary.
