This procedure describes what should be done by the EGI CSIRT in the event of a compromised identity certificate, including long lived certificates and proxies. This applies to robot certificates and service certificates as well as user certificates. This also includes what is done when certificates are linked to security incidents. This procedure also addresses usage of Central Security Emergency suspension. The implications of a CA compromise are also briefly described.
Notes and Changes:
Removing earlier versions -renaming to 'version for approval' - so people don't get confused.
