Fermilab PKI Transition

The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is transitioning away from supporting the DOEGrids certificate authority (CA), and the DOE Grids public-key infrastructure (PKI) has ceased issuing new certificates. Certificates already issued will continue to work until they expire (one year from the date of issue Fermilab virtual organizations and web hosts and services that rely on DOEGrids certificates are transitioning to use a new CA.
