A warm Barev (welcome) to Arsen Hayrapetyan from ArmeSFo, the Armenian e-Science Foundation. He is visiting RAL for two months to work on CA software, a visit funded by NATO's Science for Peace and Security programme. The aim is to develop CA software for "NATO partners and mediterranean dialogue countries."

The main raison d'ĂȘtre for the certificate infrastructure is that our certificates are trusted all over the world - they provide a sufficiently high level of assurance. All grid and e-Science CAs in the world are united in the International Grid Trust Federation, which encourages trust and collaborations between national CAs. With the software developed by Arsen, we can expand this collaboration to new countries, such as Georgia, Turkmenistan, and Kazakhstan, to enable and encourage further collaborations between scientists.
