The Globus Simple CA package provides a convenient method of setting up a certificate authority (CA). The Certificate Authority can then be used to issue certificates for users and services that work with GSI and WS-Security. Simple CA is intended for operators of small Grid testing environments and users who are not part of a larger Grid.
Most production Grids will not accept certificates that are not signed by a well-known CA, so the certificates generated by Simple CA will usually not be sufficient to gain access to production services.
