.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.PP
The
\fBgrid\-ca\-sign\fR
program signs a certificate based on a request file with a CA certificate created by
\fBgrid\-ca\-create\fR\&. The new certificate is written to a file\&. If the CA has already signed a certificate with the same subject name as contained in the certificate request, it will refuse to sign the new request unless the
\fB\-force\fR
option is provided on the command\-line\&.
.PP
If run as a privileged user,
\fBgrid\-ca\-sign\fR
uses the CA certificate and configuration located in
\fB${localstatedir}\fR/lib/globus/simple_ca
to sign the certificate\&. For a non\-privileged user,
\fBgrid\-ca\-sign\fR
uses the CA certificate and configuration located in
\fB$HOME\fR/\&.globus/simpleCA\&. The
\fBgrid\-ca\-sign\fR
program an use a different CA configuration and certificate by using the
\fB\-dir\fR
option\&.
.PP
The full set of command\-line options to
\fBgrid\-ca\-sign\fR
follows\&. In addition to these, unknown options will be passed to the
\fBopenssl\fR
command when creating the self\-signed certificate\&.
.PP
