Release Notes
European Grid Infrastructure EGI Trust Anchor release 1.98          2019.04.29

   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 1.98-1 with the specific DOGWOOD CA in
meta-package "ca-policy-egi-combined-adequacy-model-1.98-1"
that supports the model of joint assurance provision as detailed in the
EGI Policy on Acceptable Authentication Assurance.

   This release contains a new "cam" (combined assurance/adequacy) package 
   based on the approved policy on differentiated assurance. See details on
   the EGI Wiki at
   you must ONLY install the new ca-policy-egi-cam packages if you ALSO
   at the same time implement VO-specific authorization controls in your
   software stack. This may require reconfiguration or a software update. See
   just only install or update the regular ca-policy-egi-core package. There 
   are no changes in this case. The ca-policy-egi-core package is approved for
   all VOs membership and assurance models. No configuration change is needed.

With the introduction of combined assurance/adequacy, the EGEE compatibility 
RPM (lcg-CA) can no longer be supported, and - when still installed - will be 
obsoleted. The proper dependency packages are: ca-policy-_body_-_class_ and 
these have been installed automatically as dependencies since 2010.

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

Policy on Acceptable Authentication Assurance (Updated 1 Feb 2017)
If a VO registration service or e-Infrastructure registration service is
accredited by EGI to meet or exceed the approved authentication assurance
profiles, an IGTF accredited Authority meeting the Assurance Profile DOGWOOD
- used solely in combination with said registration service - is also
adequate for user authentication. This policy has been adopted on Feb 1st,
2017, and is available at
In the PKI Technology Rendering, EGI thus approves the IGTF SLCS, MICS, and
Classic APs for general use (egi-core), and in addition the IOTA AP for use 
in combination with VO registration services that themselves meet the 
aforementioned requirements. This additional restriction must be implemented
by each service in the authorization software. The "combined assurance"
model package must not be installed unless the additional authorization is
in place. You will need to reconfigure and may need to install upgrades.
