  Description     : IGTF profiles for Authority Root Certificates

 The International Grid Trust Federation (IGTF) maintains a common
 trust base for the benefit of distributed science and research
 computing infrastructures by maintaining a list of trust anchors, for
 accredited authorities. The distribution contains root certificates,
 certificate revocation list (CRL) locations, contact information, and
 signing policies.

 The package is split up according to the different profiles of the
 IGTF (each profile covers a different set of rules and policies).
 The most important ones are classic, mics (member integrated credential
 service) and slcs (short lived credential service).

 The trust anchors maintained by the IGTF form a trust backbone for many
 large-scale science communities, among which the European Grid
 Infrastructure (http://www.ige.eu/) and the World-wide LHC Computing
 Grid (http://lcg.web.cern.ch/lcg/).

 The certificates are kept in /usr/share/igtf-policy/ and
 /usr/share/ca-certificates/igtf-*/. They are meant to be placed in
 /etc/grid-security/certificates, where the commonly used grid middleware
 will look for it; it is also possible to include (some of) the certificates
 in /etc/ssl/certs by using dpkg-reconfigure ca-certificates.
