Description: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).
