More CILogon Certificates Now IGTF Accredited

posted Jul 1, 2014, 11:10 AM by Jim Basney
CILogon certificates are now more widely accepted due to recent accreditation by the Interoperable Global Trust Federation (igtf.net). The CILogon Basic Certification Authority is now an IGTF accredited Identifier-Only Trust Assurance (IOTA) provider. As discussed in a previous news item, this new accreditation enables CILogon to provide IGTF certificates to users from all InCommon identity providers, not just InCommon Silver identity providers. As a result, CILogon certificates can now be used more broadly for access to XSEDE service providers as documented at http://www.cilogon.org/xsede.
