Site Certification Services

NGIs that do not have their own Core Grid Services to perform certification for new sites, can use the Catch All Certification Services provided by AUTH/GRNET as part of the EGI-InSPIRE SA1.8 activity. The existing Catch All Site Certification infrastructure consists of:

  • Top Level BDII (
  • WMS/LB (

NGI Managers can add sites to the EGI Catch All Top Level certification BDII through the site certification portal

CA Services

A Catch All CA needs to be available to any user community within the EGI. Right now most of the countries participating in the EGI have or are in the process of creating their own Certification Authorities. Yet, there are still a number of countries that are late to this process and their user communities depend on the existence of a catch all CA to issue them certificates.

SEE-GRID CA provides CA services for EGI and collaborating countries that have not established their own PKI.

SEE-GRID CA is a member of the International Grid Trust Federation (IGTF) and it is accredited by the European Grid Policy Management Authority (EUGridPMA).

More information about SEE-GRID CA along with the current list of SEE-GRID CA Registration Authorities.

DTEAM VO for Site Administrators

The DTEAM VO is an infrastructure VO that MUST be enabled by all EGI Resource Centers that support the VO concept for user authentication, as stated in the Resource Centre Operational Level Agreement. It is meant for testing and troubleshooting of grid capabilities across EGI Resource Centers. Usage of the DTEAM VO is subject to the EGI Security Policies.

More information about the DTEAM VO and how site administrators can join the VO.
