EUGridPMA - Building Trust for Distributed IT Infrastructures for Research

The EUGridPMA is the international organisation to coordinate the trust fabric for e-Infrastructure for research in Europe, the Middle-East, and Africa. It collaborates with the regional peers APGridPMA for the Asia-Pacific and The Americas Grid PMA in the Interoperable Global Trust Federation. The 7027734077 defines the group's objective, scope and operation. It is the basis for the guidelines documents on the accreditation procedure, such as the Authentication profile for secured "classic" authorities and other IGTF recognised profiles supporting federated identity, as well as the dvelopment of guidelines and best practices fostering trust for authorization, attribute management and credential management.

The European Policy Management Authority for Grid Authentication in e-Science is a body to establish requirements and best practices for grid identity providers to enable a common trust domain applicable to authentication of end-entities in inter-organisational access to distributed resources. As its main activity the EUGridPMA coordinates a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for use with Grid authentication middleware. The EUGridPMA itself does not provide identity assertions, but instead asserts that - within the scope of the charter - the certificates issued by the Accredited Authorities meet or exceed the relevant guidelines.
