Obtaining a certificate

You need to obtain a grid certificate from your local CA.

Loading your certificate into the browser

If the certificate that you obtained from the CA is not automatically loaded in your browser:
1) In your home directory, make a directory .globus
2) Copy the public part of your certificate into ~/.globus/usercert.pem
3) Find the private part of the certificate (ususally userkey.pem) and cp into ~/.globus/userkey.pem
4) Use OpenSSL to make a .p12 file so we can load it into your browser:
openssl pkcs12 -export -in ~/.globus/usercert.pem -inkey ~/.globus/userkey.pem -out ~/usercert.p12
5) Load Firefox, Preferences --> Encryption --> View Certificates --> Your Certificate --> Import and select your P12
[You may also want to tick ("Select One Automatically") under Preferences -> Encryption]
