PK-GRID-CA at National Centre for Physics (NCP), is an accredited certification Authority (CA) under the European Grid Policy Management Authority (EUGridPMA). The EUGridPMA is the International organization to co-ordinate the trust fabric for e-science grid authentication in Europe. It co-ordinates with the regional peers APGridPMA for Asia Pacific and The American Grid PMA in the International Grid Trust Federation. It is the first only Certification Authority in Pakistan. PK-GRID-CA issues X.509 digital certificates to users/hosts to use grid resources under secure environment.


By virtue of the Certificate Policy and Certification Practice Statement (CP-CPS), these digital certificates are issued only to users/communities participating in High Energy Physics (HEP) Program in collaboration with NCP.

Several revisions were made and the final version of the CP-CPS was published in April 2004. The PK-GRID-CA was presented at the 2nd meeting of the EUGridPMA in Brussels in September 2004, where it was formally approved and accredited by the PMA. PK-GRID-CA started its operations since then.
