Grid Certificate

  • In order to use gridftp you need to have a valid grid certificate issued from the GridKa Certificate Authority (CA).
  • Export your certificate from your browser as pk12 file and convert into the pem format with this script (requires openssl):
wget --no-check-certificate
chmod 755
./ usercert.p12
  • copy user certificate files in .globus folder:
mkdir -p $HOME/.globus/certificates
mv usercert.pem $HOME/.globus
mv userkey.pem $HOME/.globus
chmod og-rwx $HOME/.globus userkey.pem

ls -l $HOME/.globus/
drwxrwxr-x. 2 myname users 4096 Mar  9 08:29 certificates
-r--r--r--. 1 myname users 1999 Mar 15 09:28 usercert.pem
-r--------. 1 myname users 2004 Mar 15 09:28 userkey.pem
