2. ACTIVITY REPORT

2.1. Progress Summary

  • National instances of Nagios, Top BDII and Operations portal were provided, as well as set of services provided for VOCE and Auger VOs (WMS, LB, UI, MyProxy, VOMS).
  • APEL accounting service was successfully deployed on Cesnet cluster, complete migration to APEL will be finished in February.
  • Migration to glite 3.2 was done on almost all services, the only missing services are LCG-CE (still missing in glite 3.2) and MON box.
  • Migration to new certification authority CESNET CA3 has started, most of services are already running with service certificate signed by new CA
  • We have been further maintaining the RequestTracker ticketing system (RT) and the

interface between RT and the GGUS. NGI_CZ is also actively participating in the GGUS-RT Interface Task Force. In the last reporting period we had to deal with issues stemming from unrehearsed and impromptu interconnecting of different NGI ticketing systems and mailing lists and take measures to prevent these issues in the future.

  • As the coordinator of the security monitoring activity of EGI CSIRT, we produced a draft of functions of security dashboard and initiated discussions with the portal developers and OTAG about enhancing the current operations dashboard accordingly. A final decision about the implmentation has been than taken by OTAG and the work has started. A first prototype of the security dashboard is planned for cca May 2011.
  • We've applied additional improvements to the EGI Pakiti service, which detects unpatched machines in the infrastructure (namely an alerting mechanism was added, which sents out notifications whenever a critical vulnerability appears).
  • Regular activities in the EGI CSIRT, we acted a duty-contact for one week,

2.2. Main Achievements

  • gLite 3.2 migration almost done, MON box upgrade was delayed with CA change, the only missing service

is LCG-CE
