How to start using the grid, and information about virtual organizations and grid certificates (how to get one, renew one, and start using one).

Before you can start using the grid, you must first establish your grid identity by obtaining a certificate, and join a virtual organization (VO) related to your experiment.

The main steps are:

  1. Obtaining a grid certificate.
  2. Joining a VO.
  3. Installing your grid certificate.
  4. Adding your certificate to a VO (if necessary).
