Release Notes
European Grid Infrastructure EGI Trust Anchor release 1.85          2017.07.31

   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 1.85-1 with Classic, SLCS and MICS profiles, encoded in
meta-package "ca-policy-egi-core-1.85-1" (new installs) and "lcg-CA-1.85-1"
(for sites upgrading from EGEE/JSPG releases).

  Sites that need compliance with the WLCG policy should install BOTH packages,
  or you will miss out the CERN WLCG IOTA CA specific exception. Details, see:

  The next release 1.85 will add support for differentiated assurance in the
  EGI trust fabric infrastructure in the form of an additional trust anchor
  meta-package, which replaces the specific policy mechanism described above.
  Please review the documentation for the new software that will be needed
  to support differentiated assurance and the Collaborative Assurance Model.
  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.
