Installing a UI for the NGS A Problem! Grid Services Portal Usage of Grid Services Portal ??
Installing a UI for the NGS Solution: MyProxy Myproxy allows you to store a long-lived proxy in a MyProxy repository and derive a proxy certificate when needed. Allows you to: –Interact with a grid from many machines And you realise that you must NOT, EVER leave your certificate where anyone can find and use it. –Use a portal, and delegate to the portal the right to act on your behalf (by logging in to an account that can make a proxy certificate for you) –Run jobs that might last longer than the lifetime of a short-lived proxy
