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.
