The Windows operating system includes a built-in Certificate Manager that stores user and server certificates and keys. Certain applications, including the Chrome web browser, use this centralized Certificate Manager for storing and retrieving certificate information in lieu of maintaining their own, separate certificate repositories. One must use the Windows Certificate Manager in order to add a certificate-key pair to, remove from, or export certificate-key pairs from Chrome and other, similar applications.
Home directories -
Home directories are meant to store small files only. All home directories are restricted by user quotas and the quotas varies as per experiment.
You can use "quota -s" to check your quota.
All home directories have a daily backup and snapshot policy. Backups are kept for 30 days and snapshots for 7 days.
Snapshots can be accessed by navigating to the .snapshots directory.
Steps for cluster access using SDCC gateways:
Institutional Cluster and Sky Cluster access
From a gateway, SSH to either of the following institutional cluster submit nodes:
The cluster has a debug partition used for debug/interactive sessions
General information on joining a project's virtual organization (VO).
Virtual organizations (VOs) are sets of grid identities, organized in groups, with roles assigned to individuals. Typically, these are groups of people that sit at different physical locations all over the world to achieve a common goal, such as finding QGP or the Higgs boson.
Frequently asked questions regarding grid certificate requests, installation, and use.
While these instructions have been created largely for the benefit of ATLAS VO members, and mainly within the US, members of other VOs may find them useful and should substitute their VO and CA as appropriate.
How to import and export certificate-key pairs using the macOS Keychain.
Apple's macOS includes a built-in key and password manager, Keychain, which stores user passwords, user and server certificates, and keys. Certain applications, including the Safari web browser, use this centralized Keychain for storing and retrieving certificate information in lieu of maintaining their own, separate certificate repositories. One must use the macOS Keychain in order to add a certificate-key pair to, remove from, or export certificate-key pairs from Safari and other, similar
A grid certificate serves as an identifying credential for all grid services, and is comprised of two main components:
In order to properly install some certificates, verify certificates from other grid users, and send encrypted messages and verify digital signatures, you may need to import and activate a certificate authority (CA) chain into your browser, email client, or operating system.
This also needs to be done for the CERN CA certificate before using certain CERN applications and web sites.
