OSG PKI Training registration now available for RAs, Grid Admins

Dear prospective OSG PKI Registration Agents and Grid Admins,

The new OSG PKI that will go into operation in October, while being very similar to the DOE Grids PKI, will have changes to its interface and workflows. Hence the transition team is offering training to Registration Agents and Grid Admins.

Training sessions will be available via webcast and will involve hands-on approval of certificates via the OSG test PKI. Times and URLs for registration are below.

** Please register at least a week in advance so that we can grant you access to the training system. **

Note that one change is how responsibilities are divided between Grid Admins and Registration Agents. In the new OSG PKI, Registration Agents will be solely responsible for certificates for people, while Grid Admins will be responsible solely for host and service certificates. We expect some individuals will be both Registration Agents and Grid Admins.

If you have any questions, please feel feel to contain Von Welch (vwelch@indiana.edu), OSG PKI Transition Project Lead, Mine Altunay (maltunay@fnal.gov) or Jim Basney (jbasney@illinois.edu), OSG PKI Training Leads.

Thank you,


* Monday Oct 1 12-4pm CT: Registration Agent Training Session 1

* Monday Oct 8 12-4pm CT: Grid Admin Training Session 1

* Monday Oct 22 12-4pm CT: Registration Agent Training Session 2

* Friday Oct 26 12-4pm CT: Grid Admin Training Session 2
