Release Notes
European Grid Infrastructure EGI Trust Anchor release 1.82          2017.03.27

   For release DOCUMENTATION available on this EGI Trust Anchor release see   

This is the EGI Trust Anchor release, based on the updated IGTF Accredited CA
distribution version 1.82-1 with Classic, SLCS and MICS profiles, encoded in
meta-package "ca-policy-egi-core-1.82-1" (new installs) and "lcg-CA-1.82-1"
(for sites upgrading from EGEE/JSPG releases).

  Your may install BOTH "egi-core" AND "lcg" meta-packages, according to your 
  policies. Note that your organisation or NGI may have a specific policy and
  may have added or removed CAs compared to the EGI core policy.
  Sites that need compliance with the WLCG policy should install BOTH packages,
  or you will miss out the CERN WLCG IOTA CA specific exception see for details and the WLCG statement

  In the first quarter of 2017, full support for differentiated assurance
  profiles will be introduced in the EGI trust fabric infrastructure. This
  will take the form of an additional trust anchor meta-package, and replaces
  the specific policy mechanism described above. Such full support also
  required new software and configuration at each resource centre.
  We ask for your support in implementing the requisite changes, and deploy
  new trust anchor meta-packages and the new local policies only in unison.

The following notices are republished from the IGTF, inasfar as pertinent to
this release. Details are found in the newsletter
