The production-level operation of the High Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI) in Japan started from the end of September 2012. HPCI includes supercomputers and storages managed by universities and research institutes. The HPCI Certificate Authority (CA) supports the authentication system of HPCI and is operated according to a Certificate Policy / Certification Practice Statement (CP/CPS) based on the Member Integrated X.509 PKI Credential Service (MICS) authentication profile. In order to use a certificate issued by HPCI CA for international research collaboration, HPCI CA should be accredited by an international trust federation such as the International Grid Trust Federation (IGTF). This talk presents the overview of the HPCI authentication system, especially focuses on MICS-based CP/CPS, and discusses issues toward accreditation by IGTF.
