Why a certificate? You need a certificate to authenticate (make your identity known) to services, hosts and other users in the grid environment. With your certificate, you can set up secure internet connections, sign your electronic messages, and prove your identity to web and grid sites. However, the certificate in itself does not give you any access rights per se: for that you will also need authorization for your favourite services.
