Software Decription

WLCG VOBOX meta-package

Abstract

The WLCG VOBOX is the successor of the gLite VOBOX and provides:

– an EMI UI
– a GSI-OpenSSH (gsisshd) service
– a proxy renewal and VO agent service

The VOBOX typically is dedicated to a single VO of which only certain privileged users (e.g. software managers, ”sgm” users) are given access through GSI-OpenSSH, while only the site admins have root access. The privileged users can register proxies to be regularly renewed by the proxy renewal service. The same service can also be used to start (stop) VO daemons automatically at boot (shutdown) time. The VO daemons can use EMI UI functionalities as needed. The proxy renewal service relies on the VOBOX host DN to be recognized as an authorized renewer by the MyProxy server that was specified when a particular proxy was registered (by default $MYPROXY_SERVER).

Community Release: wlcg.vobox 1.0.1

Release 1.0.1 includes lcg-vobox 2.1.3 which brings a few small improvements:

  • removed voms-proxy-info ”-dont-verify-ac” option, not present in EMI-3
  • more robust validity check of renewed proxy
  • clean up temporary file if the validity check fails
  • vobox-proxy man page: the MYPROXY_SERVER environment variable is not required

An upgrade from release 1.0.0 should be transparent, nothing needs to be reconfigured or restarted.
