The different proxies

grid-proxy

To create a grid-proxy, type the following command:


$ grid-proxy-init


create_proxy_02

This proxy lasts for twelve hours. You can specify a longer lifetime, but this implies security risks. You have to mention your virtual organisation in all further commands.


voms-proxy

To create a voms-proxy, type the following command:


$ voms-proxy-init -voms voce


voms_proxy_init_02

If you belong to another virtual organisation, replace voce by your organisation.

This proxy lasts for twelve hours. You can specify a longer lifetime, but this implies security risks. In some commands you may omit your virtual organisation as it is stored in the proxy.


myproxy

This is the only secure long-term-proxy.

To create a myproxy, type the following line:

$ myproxy-init -d -s agrid.uibk.ac.at -R grid-rb.uibk.ac.at

myproxy_create_01

This longterm-proxy is valid for one week and it renews every twelve hours the proxy. This long-term proxy is stored on a proxy server. With the option -s agrid.uibk.ac.at the myproxy-Server is given. If you don't use this option, the default myproxy-Server is used. You get your myproxy-Server by typing:

$ echo $MYPROXY_SERVER


With the option -r grid-rb.uibk.ac.at the Resource Broker that is allowed to do proxy renewal is given. The option -d means that your Distinguished Name (DN) is your username, if you don't use this option your logname is taken as username. To get your logname type:

$ echo $LOGNAME


To get infos about the proxy or to delete it, you need a valid grid-proxy.

$ grid-proxy-init
$ myproxy-info -d -s agrid.uibk.ac.at


myproxy_info_01

To destroy your myproxy type:

$ myproxy-destroy -d -s agrid.uibk.ac.at


Be sure that you use the same option in the different myproxy-commands: e.g. if you created your myproxy with the option -d, use it also for getting infos and for destroying.
