How to register your personal certificate from the CERN Certificate Authority (CA) with the CMS Virtual Organization (VO)

NB: These instructions apply to users who have never before registered any personal certificates with the CMS VO. If you have previously registered any personal certificate (e.g., from the DOEgrids CA) with the CMS VO, please follow these instructions

  1. Point your Firefox (Mozilla) browser to Make sure you are signed with CERN personal certificate by verifying that you see something like this written in red at the bottom of the web page:
    You are logged in as /DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=Organic Units/OU=Users/CN=snihur/CN=694458/CN=Robert Snihur
    /DC=ch/DC=cern/CN=CERN Trusted Certification Authority
    On the left hand side, click on "Registration Phase I". screenshot
  2. On the next page, fill in all the fields. For the email field, I used ""; you must use your CERN email address. For "Select representative :" choose "Anthony Tiradani". Click submit. screenshot
  3. You will get an email with subject "Automatic Notification from cms VOMRS: You have to confirm e-mail address and finish registration", click on the link in the email. The web page for Registration Phase II will open up. Most likely, you should only check the two boxes on the right hand side which correspond to "Group Role = cmsuser" for "Group = /cms" and "Group = /cms/uscms". NB: Please check the appropriate boxes if you know that you have additional roles (e.g., I also checked "Group Role = cmst3admin" under "Group = /cms"). Enter your "CERN id or Date of Birth", check the "Accept" button at the bottom of the page, then click on the button to register. screenshot
  4. You should see a web page that says "You have successfully submitted phase II of cms VO registration" screenshot
