Security was the main focus at the third TERENA NREN-Grids Workshop, which concluded today. Held in Paris and hosted by CNRS/IAP (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique/Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris) the workshop highlighted the need for Grid security awareness. The aim of the TERENA NREN-Grid workshops is to reach common understandings and agreements on how the NREN and Grid communities can best work together at the technical, organisational and political levels.

Fog Didn't Stop Play

Dense fog over Vilnius, Lithuania, almost prevented the TERENA and FIRST training course for staff members of Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) taking place, but thanks to the flexibility of the tutors and students alike, the event concluded on time.

The training course took place on 29-30 March 2006 and was the second organised jointly by TERENA and FIRST (the global Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams). The CSIRTs courses follow on from the successful TRANSITS (Training of Network Security Teams Staff) project, which concluded at the end of September 2005.

First Certificate of TERENA's Server Certificate Service Issued Today

Today the first certificate of TERENA’s Server Certificate Service was issued. The certificate was actually requested by TERENA itself for one of its own servers. It was issued by Jan Meijer, one of SURFnet’s Registration Authority (RA) administrators who has been one of the originators of the service and who has played an active role throughout the preparations.

Eight NRENs will act as Registration Authorities for issuing SureServer EDU certificates provided by Cybertrust. Three of them, ACONET (Austria), SURFnet (Netherlands) and SWITCH (Switzerland) will begin issuing certificates today. The others are in the process of finalising the RA agreements and will start operating an RA shortly.

Details of the ceremonial handover of the first certificate and information about the service can be found at: http://www.terena.nl/activities/scs/index.html
