A replication issue that affected availability of VOMS service was found around mid-December and it has been resolved.
EGI Catch all CA
The EGI catch-all CA has switched over. New CA bundle accepted via EUGridPMA and included in 1.55 release. New CA issues SHA-2 end entity certificates and SHA-2 compliant CRLs from 1st of January 2014 and henceforth. Old CA will continue operations (only CRL issuance).
Core services for site certification
Code base of site-certification.egi.eu has been refactored. Deployment of the new software release on the production service has taken place within QR15.
During quarter 15 maintenance operations on the midmon dedicated SAM instance (used for monitoring of running middleware versions on sites) have been applied. Also several new probes have been added that enable and assist the campaign for unsupported middleware service instances.
Also a new security nagios box based on SAM-Update-22 has been deployed. All checks and probes from the old instance have been moved to the new one and after testing the consistency of the results the new one has replaced the old one.
