This presentation describes the TERENA Academic Certification Authorities Repository (TACAR) and the policy document in use to describe the way to join and use the repository.
The idea of setting-up an on-line repository hosting the academic trust anchor arose during one the meeting of the TERENA Task Force for Authentication and Authorisation Coordination for Europe(TF-AACE) and gained immediately a lot of consensus within the academic community.
Over the last months of the 2003 the TF-AACE group has formalized the policy, established a pilot site and exercised the procedures by incorporating several academic PKIs into the repository.
The policy reflects the fact that the community of identity providers in the academic and research environment is small and therefore personal trust relationships were already in place.
TACAR is intended as trusted source to obtain PKI root certificates enabling independent validation of trust links among different infrastructure.



This presentation is part of session "TERENA Activities" which starts at Tuesday, June 8 @ 11:00
