GridCertLib is a Java library leveraging a Shibboleth-based authentication infrastructure and the SLCS online certificate signing service, to provide short-lived X.509 certificates and Grid proxies.
The main use case envisioned for GridCertLib is to provide seamless and secure access to Grid/X.509 certificates and proxies in web portals: when a user logs in to the portal using the regular SWITCHaai Shibboleth authentication, GridCertLib can automatically obtain a Grid X.509 certificate from the SLCS service and generate a VOMS proxy from it. What is more, all of this can happen without further interaction with the user.
