Whole site: Host certificate update

Introduction

Updating the host certificate in /etc/grid-security is not always sufficient: some services have a copy of this certificate which they started with. It is therefore necessary to update those copies and restart these services.

This page tends to sum up services which need to be restarted.

Copies location and permissions

Copies of certificate are in general with the following rights:

  • 644 for public key (hostcert.pem)
  • 600 for the private key (hostkey.pem)

Generally you can easily find the location using locate unix command:

locate hostcert.pem
locate hostkey.pem

but for some services they change the file name like:

  • tomcat-cert.pem
  • tomcat-key.pem

usually you can find the host certificate and key in /etc/grid-security or in a sub directory named like the services (voms, storm, dpm, ...)

  • List for individual services:
    • CREAM CE
            # ll /etc/grid-security/*.pem
            -rw-r--r-- 1 root   root 1428 Oct 22 10:19 /etc/grid-security/hostcert.pem
            -r-------- 1 root   root  887 Oct 22 10:19 /etc/grid-security/hostkey.pem
            -rw-r--r-- 1 tomcat root 1428 Nov 12 16:01 /etc/grid-security/tomcat-cert.pem
            -r-------- 1 tomcat root  887 Nov 12 16:01 /etc/grid-security/tomcat-key.pem
      
            # ll /home/glite/.certs/
            total 8
            -rw-r--r-- 1 glite glite 1428 Dec 13 06:00 hostcert.pem
            -r-------- 1 glite glite  887 Nov 12 16:03 hostkey.pem
