Using the Grid/Getting a Grid certificate
If you are a researcher in the Netherlands we recommended you to request a certificate via Digicert CA, by using your institutional login and SURFconext. This is the easiest and fastest way to get a Grid certificate.
How to get a Digicert certificate
DigiCert CA allows you to get your Grid certificate instantly from the GEANT Trusted Certificate Service (former was the Terena portal), by using your institutional login and SURFconext.
- Request a so called Grid Premium certificate by accessing the DigiCert portal.
