PURSE makes user registration for Grid applications easy

Press Release 21st April 05

Email released to globus list by Lee Liming 21st April 2005:

On behalf of the Grids Center and Globus Alliance we are pleased to announce the release of PURSE: Portal-based User Registration System, which is now available for download. PURSE is a system for registering users of Web-based applications that use the Grid Security Infrastructure (based on PKI and X.509 certificates). PURSE coordinates the process of establishing Grid security certificates for new users when logging in to an application web site. Users who already have valid certificates can also easily register with the portal applications. By leveraging the MyProxy certificate repository, PURSE shields web application users from the complexities of X.509 certificate management, and enables rapid registration of users.
