Grid Certificate Renewal

A page detailing how grid certificates are renewed for grid resources. These instructions should not be followed for user certificates!

General Procedure

This would be easier if firefox/mozilla were installed on all Grid nodes. This should not happen for the following reasons:

  1. The browser will run as root on the resource. This is a security risk
  2. The browser will require a large number of packages (such as X, gtk etc) be installed and maintained.
  3. The .pem files will still have to be backed up externally





Filename Owner Group Permissions
