The UK National Grid Service (NGS) will be hosting three, 30 minute online seminars through February, highlighting the recent developments in the UK for accessing and managing grid resources. The seminars are aimed at interested parties from the grid community and further afield who are interested in access management.
8th February - Certificate Management in the UK - John Kewley, NGS, STFC Daresbury
The National Grid Service (NGS) helpdesk receives many tickets relating to certificates (and certificate renewal in particular): largely due to browser incompatibilities. In order to tackle this problem, the NGS has devised CertWizard which is a browser-independent certificate tool.
The presentation will give an introduction to the UK e-Science CA, which has issued over 30,000 certificates, and its associated software and interfaces, including CertWizard.
It will show how modernisations are being made at various stages of the certificate lifecycle, making it easier than ever for users to manage their e-Science Certificate.
