GlobalSign

The CSC currently has an SSL Certificate from GlobalSign for *.csclub.uwaterloo.ca provided at no cost to us through IST. GlobalSign likes to take a long time to respond to certificate signing requests (CSR) for wildcard certs, so our CSR really needs to be handed off to IST at least 2 weeks in advance. Having an invalid cert for any length of time leads to terrible breakage, followed by terrible workarounds and prolonged problems.
