The Icare hosting websites use SSL Certificates to identify you when you login and protect your student information as it is transferred between the server and your PC.
SSL Certificate expiry
The SSL Certificates only last one year plus a month, so you need to renew them each year.
You will know that you need to do this when you see either of the following two messages on the Log in page:
WARNING: SSL Certificate expires in # days
WARNING: SSL Certificate has expired!
This will be followed by a Renew SSL Certificate link to start the renewal process.
