cigetcert gets an X.509 certificate from a SAML 2.0 Service Provider (SP) such as CILogon using the Enhanced Client or Proxy (ECP) profile. Optionally it can also get a grid proxy certificate and/or transfer a grid proxy to MyProxy. It was developed for the Fermilab Distributed Computing Access with Federated Identities (DCAFI) project but is intended to be usable by other projects.

For details see the man page

An rpm is available in Scientific Linux Fermi. If someone wants it in Scientific Linux please contact cigetcert support.
