The ISA² Test Bed has completed the process of obtaining a dedicated DNS sub-domain under "ec.europa.eu". ISA²'s shared Test Bed instance is now available at https://www.itb.ec.europa.eu/itb. All existing validation services have similarly been updated to be available under the new sub-domain. Note that previously used addresses remain valid to avoid any disruption to existing users.
This update helps identify the Test Bed's available services as European Commission services and enables the use of secure communications through server certificates.
