Q: How do I get my DoE Grids CA certificate to access SGVO resources?

A:  Goto https://software.grid.iu.edu/cert/certreg.php, fill out your name, email addrss, phone number.  Select SGVO as your virtial organization.  For the sponsor, you will need to list your campus SGVO sponsor.  List their named, email, and phone number.  Optionally, if you are renewing an existing DoE Grids cert you can enter the DN of that cert in the the "Expired Certificate" Section.  To see the DN you can use a command like `openssl x509 -subject -noout < your-doe-cert.pem` or read the instructions on this form.

During the initlial phases of SGVO set up, the number of sponsors is limited.  If you don't know who your sponsor is, please contact the SURAgrid support list suragrid@....

Make sure the "High Grade" security certificate (drop down at bottom) is selected.
