Trust anchors for GENI aggregates

As of GEC16 (March 2013), the GPO recommends that all GENI aggregates trust the following GENI slice authorities (aka "the GENI cert bundle"), allowing the users at those SAs to use resources at GENI racks, GENI backbone and regional networks, etc.

The table below includes links to the SA certificate file, or to both of the MA and CA certificates, for each trust anchor. You can also download the entire bundle as a compressed tar file, which unpacks into a directory named "geni-cert-bundle", and includes an MD5SUMS file with md5sums for the certs. The md5sum for the .tar.gz file itself is c21e69e57ce3868d4edc302899ffc9f7.

Refer to aggregate-specific instructions for how to configure your aggregate to trust a particular certificate.

A note on certificate types:

  • A self-signed SA certificate can be added to an aggregate's list of trusted certificates by itself --- it contains everything the aggregate needs in order to trust that slice authority
  • MA and CA certificates for a host should be added to an aggregate's list of trusted certificates as a pair --- the MA certificate signs certificates presented by individual experimenters, while the CA is the self-signed certificate needed to complete the chain to a trust root.

The following certificates are not part of the GENI bundle, but are provided on this page as well because aggregate operators may find them useful for specific projects. They are not recommended unless you have a particular need for them.
