Certification Authority (CA) certificates are used to verify the link between your user certificate and the authority which issued it. They are also used to verify the link between the host certificate of a IT4Innovations server and the CA which issued that certificate. In essence they establish a chain of trust between you and the target server. Thus, for some grid services, users must have a copy of all the CA certificates.
To assist users, SURFsara (a member of PRACE) provides a complete and up-to-date bundle of all the CA certificates that any PRACE user (or IT4Innovations grid services user) will require. Bundle of certificates, in either p12, PEM or JKS formats, are [available here](http://winnetou.sara.nl/prace/certs/).

It is worth noting that gsissh-term and DART automatically updates their CA certificates from this SURFsara website. In other cases, if you receive a warning that a server’s certificate can not be validated (not trusted), then please update your CA certificates via the SURFsara website. If this fails, then please contact the IT4Innovations helpdesk.
