New Website Security Certificate Information

The American people expect government websites to be secure and their interactions with those websites to be private. When visiting the Navy’s website, expect a security certificate message.

The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum M-15-13, “A Policy to Require Secure Connections across Federal Websites and Web Services” requires that all publicly accessible Federal websites and web services only provide service through the use of a secure connection. The strongest privacy and integrity protection currently available for public web connections is Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) which many commercial organizations have implemented to protect visitors to their websites and services.

The Federal government and NAVFAC are adapting to this changing landscape. The NAVFAC Public website implemented Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) in January 2017. These Certificates ensure that your computer can recognize and guarantee the integrity of the connection between the NAVFAC Web site and your computer. If you choose NOT to take advantage of installing these certificates, you will receive a certificate warning page indicating “There’s a problem with this websites security certificate” each time you connect to this site. Additionally, you should update all bookmarks that you may have saved to specific pages to reflect this change in protocols. Instructions on how to install the Department of Defense (DoD) Certificates is provided below.

If you have any questions about this procedure or problems downloading the certificate after following the instructions, please contact If you would like a copy of the PDF document with the instructions (see below) emailed to you, please call the HPNS Info Line at (415) 295-4742 or send an email to
