Clinical Key generating security warnings with EZProxy

The Library is experiencing problems with the Clinical Key database and EZProxy. When logging in to Clinical Key, you will see an “insecure connection” warning message.

If you are off-campus and attempting to access the database via remote access you will see the “untrusted connection” warning. It is OK to go ahead and click-through to the database.
The publisher and EZProxy are both aware of the problem, and we are doing all we can to get this issue resolved as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.
