grid-ca-package - Prepare a CA certificate, configuration, and policy for distribution


grid-ca-sign [-ca HASH] [-g] [-b] [-r] [-d]

grid-ca-sign [ -help| -h| -usage| -version| -versions ]


The grid-ca-sign utility creates a tarball containing an RPM spec file and the files
needed to use a CA with grid tools. It optionally will also create a GPT package for
distributing a CA.

By default, the grid-ca-sign utility displays a list of installed grid CA and prompts for
which CA to package. It then creates a tarball containing the CA certificate, signing
policy, CA configuration files, and an spec script to generate a binary RPM package
containing the CA. If the CA hash is known prior to running grid-ca-sign, it may provided
as an argument to the -ca parameter to avoid prompting.

In addition to generating a spec script and tarball, grid-ca-sign creates a GPT package if
either the -g or -b options are used on the command-line. These packages may be used to
distribute a CA and configuration to systems which do not support RPM packages.

The grid-ca-sign utility writes the package tarballs to the current working directory.


The full set of command-line options to grid-ca-sign follows:

-help, -h, -usage
Display the command-line options to grid-ca-sign and exit.

-version, -versions
Display the version number of the grid-ca-sign command. The second form includes more

-ca CA
Use the CA whose name matches the hash string CA. When invoked with this option,
grid-ca-sign runs non-interactively.

Create a GPT binary package in addition to the RPM script tarball. This package may be
installed on other systems using the gpt-install program.

Create a GPT binary package with GPT metadata located in the path expected by GPT 3.2
(used in Globus 2.0.0-5.0.x) instead of overrides the -g command-line option.

Create a binary RPM package for the CA. This option currently only works on RPM-based

Create a binary Debian package for the CA. This option currently only works on
Debian-based distributions.


Package a Simple CA with hash 0146c503.

% grid-ca-sign -ca 0146c503
