This category is for discussing the development of Africa Policy Management Authority (AfricaPMA). Global trust in e-Infrastructures is mediated by the Interoperable Global Trust Federation, which consists of three members, providing certificate registries. These cover most of the world, except Africa:
In order to promote interoperation between e-Infrastructures, and maintain trust between these, several national certificate authorities have been developed - mostly through the efforts of the ei4Africa and CHAIN/CHAIN-REDS projects. Several of them have requested accreditation to EUGridPMA, however this is not a scalable solution.
As part of the Sci-Gaia project, we will be developing the policy framework necessary to participate as a separate PMA to the Interoperable Global Trust Federation. This category is for discussing everything related to this.
