Getting/renewing the FusionGrid certificate

[Renewal only: an e-mail warns you before the certificate expires (typical duration: 13 months). Please react before it expires, as renewal is a lot simpler than applying for the first time.]
  • Follow the link in the e-mail, it's like[cert_id]
  • Download the new certicate file, user_certificate_and_key.[cert_id].p12, if possible in the $HOME/.globus directory
  • Import the certificate in your browser

    Import your user_certificate_and_key.[cert_id].p12 in a browser. This is important for the next renewal (only). You might want to note which browser you used (and where: PC, Sun,...) in a file in your $HOME/.globus directory, one might forget it one year later. To import:
  • Open a browser
  • (Edit->)Preferences->Advanced->Certificates->View certificates->Your Certificates
  • Import... usually from $HOME/.globus
  • Type your FusionGrid password when prompted
  • Optional: delete the old certificate from the browser
  • Install (only the first time)

    source /afs/ipp/home/t/transp/pub/
