The XSEDE MyProxy CA service is an online certificate authority that provides X.509 certificates to XSEDE users for authenticating to XSEDE services. Clients communicate with the MyProxy service using the MyProxy Protocol. General information about MyProxy can be found on the MyProxy home page.
The XSEDE MyProxy CA service is available at
myproxy.xsede.org on TCP port 7512. XSEDE users can use MyProxy clients in conjunction with their XSEDE usernames and passwords to retrieve short-lived X.509 certificates with a validity up to 11 days. The default validity period for the certificates is 12 hours. For example:
$ myproxy-logon -s myproxy.xsede.org -l username Enter MyProxy pass phrase: A credential has been received for user username in /tmp/x509up_u501.
A backup XSEDE MyProxy CA service is available at
myproxy.psc.xsede.org on TCP port 7512. Clients may be configured to use this service in the event the main service
myproxy.xsede.org becomes unavailable.
Any issues with these services should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
MyProxy OAuth Interface
See https://oa4mp.xsede.org/oauth/ for information about the OAuth interface to the XSEDE MyProxy CA service.
Retirement of myproxy.teragrid.org
The legacy myproxy.teragrid.org and myproxy.psc.teragrid.org servers are scheduled for retirement on May 19 2015. If you are using these servers, please migrate to
myproxy.xsede.org (primary) and
myproxy.psc.xsede.org (backup) as soon as possible.
When migrating to
myproxy.xsede.org, please ensure your MyProxy client software is up-to-date. Globus Toolkit 4.2.0 or later and JGlobus 2.0 or later are required (for TLS and SHA-2 algorithm support). Globus Toolkit 4.2 and 5.0 clients require setting
GLOBUS_GSSAPI_FORCE_TLS=1 in the environment for TLS support.
Please use the standard MyProxy port (7512) with
myproxy.xsede.org rather than the legacy
myproxy.teragrid.org port (7514).
myproxy.teragrid.org server, the
myproxy.xsede.org server does not support myproxy-get-trustroots. Please use the XSEDE CA Certificate Installer instead.
