Get a certificate proxy

The ritual for getting the certificate and proxy goes like this:

kinit "${USER}@FNAL.GOV"                                                     # get your Kerberos authentication
kx509                                                                        # ask Kerberos for a x509 certificate
voms-proxy-init -noregen -rfc -voms 'fermilab:/fermilab/sbnd/Role=Analysis'  # create a "proxy" from the certificate

The last line of the output from this sequence should look something like:
Your proxy is valid until Tue Sep 27 01:49:24 2016

where the date is 24 hours in the future.
This "proxy" is what we need to get our job done.
