The ritual for getting the certificate and proxy goes like this:
4 1 Gianluca Petrillo
<pre>kinit "${USER}@FNAL.GOV"                                                     # get your Kerberos authentication
5 1 Gianluca Petrillo
kx509                                                                        # ask Kerberos for a x509 certificate
6 1 Gianluca Petrillo
voms-proxy-init -noregen -rfc -voms 'fermilab:/fermilab/sbnd/Role=Analysis'  # create a "proxy" from the certificate</pre>
7 1 Gianluca Petrillo
The last line of the output from this sequence should look something like:
8 1 Gianluca Petrillo
<pre>Your proxy is valid until Tue Sep 27 01:49:24 2016</pre>
9 1 Gianluca Petrillo
where the date is 24 hours in the future.

This "proxy" is what we need to get our job done.
