NERSC Online Certificate Authority
The NERSC Online Certificate Authority (CA) issues short-lived grid certificates (valid up to 1 million seconds, or approximately 11 days) to NERSC users, based on an LDAP authenticated "myproxy-logon" client request. The NERSC Online CA is operated under the Short Lived Credential Service (SLCS) profile of the International Grid trust Federation (IGTF).
NERSC Online CA issues certificates to clients that use the myproxy protocol. The NERSC Online CA is located at nerscca.nersc.gov (also known as slcs.nersc.gov).
To acquire a certificate you must have a valid NERSC account. You can get a certificate by issuing the following command:
myproxy-logon -s nerscca.nersc.gov
You will need to enter your NERSC NIM/LDAP password to authenticate your identity. If the authentication succeeds the myproxy client will create a short lived certificate for use on the grid.
