What are Grid certificates?
In grid computing, certificates play an important role, e.g., for accessing computing and storage resources.
DFN-Verein has been an accredited member of EUGridPMA (European Grid Policy Management Authority) since June 2005 and issues Grid certificates for servers and users within the framework of the DFN-PKI.
Participants in Grid projects and administrators of Grid servers can apply for their Grid certificates at the Grid Registration Authority (RA) of the RWTH.
The certificates are issued by the certification authority "DFN-Verein PCA Grid" operated by DFN-Verein.
Grid certificates are subject to the Grid Certification Guidelines of the DFN-Verein.
