The GILDA Certification Authority (GILDA CA) issues temporary (two weeks) personal public key certificates (compliant with the X.509 standard) in order to access the GILDA Testbed.

Absolutely no identity check is going to be performed on the requester, so the personal certificates issued by the GILDA CA have absolutely no value on any real production Grid Infrastructure.

The GILDA Certification Authority is managed by:

Giuseppe Platania
INFN Catania
Via S. Sofia, 64
I-95123 Catania
ITALY
