Identity service for e-Science
RedIRIS offers its users digital certificates for secure access to e-Science resources such as supercomputers or grid computing.
This e-science specific digital certificate service, known as pkIRISGrid, has been validated by EUGridPMA, the organisation that co-ordinates the certification authorities that provide services to European e-science, which means that the certificates are accepted by all organisations validated by the IGTF (International Grid Trust Federation).
With this service, RedIRIS enables the affiliated institutions that request it and fulfil the requirements to act as registration authorities and issue certificates for the personnel and devices of those bodies involved in e-science projects.
Since the service started in 2006 have been issued more than 1.500 certificates of almost 2.000 users and servers certificates of this type.
