Certificate Setup for Swestore
Certificate authentication is needed in some special cases, and more convenient for use in automation (ie. Robot certificates).
Some communities require certificate authentication and such users might already have a certificate, that certificate is likely good to use with Swestore.
This pages describes the procedures to acquire a certificate (if needed), how to reformat the certificate for use with various tools and finally how to make Swestore aware that you have a certificate.
Acquire an eScience client certificate
If you already have a valid grid or eScience certificate you don't need to acquire another one.
Acquire a certificate by following the Requesting a certificate instruction step only on the certificate documentation page. This step can be performed while waiting for the storage application to be approved.

There are multiple suppliers of certificates. Depending on the supplier this step varies a bit.
- For Digicert certificates
- If intending to access Swestore from a SNIC resource, please make sure you also export the certificate, transfer it to the intended SNIC resource and prepare it for use with grid tools.
- For Nordugrid certificates
- Please make sure to also install your client certificate in your browser.
