LCAS uses the globus security libraries (gss, gsi, openssl), which are provided by e.g. VDT (Virtual Data Toolkit), the GACL libraries, and the VOMS API. These libraries in addition to the libraries listed here , have to be installed on the CE.

Table 1: RPMs to be installed.
RPM min. version description URL
edg-lcas 1.1.13 the LCAS shared library with the standard and example authorization plugin modules
edg-lcas-voms_plugins 1.1.13 the LCAS plugin that uses the VOMS information for the authorization
edg-lcas-interface 1.0.3 LCAS interface/API, only needed for software development (new plugins)
edg-lcfg-lcas 1.1.2 the LCFG object that configures the LCAS authorization modules and plugin database
voms-api 1.1.16 the VOMS API, used by edg-lcmaps-voms_plugins
gacl 0.9.0 the GACL runtime library, used by edg-lcmaps-voms_plugins
edg_gatekeeper-gcc32dbg_pgm 2.2.8 the modified globus gatekeeper
globus-config 0.20-1 globus configuration scripts, including the init.d gatekeeper script
edg-lcfg-globuscfg 1.3.12 the LCFG component to manage the Globus configuration

The LCAS library will be installed in /opt/edg/lib/lcas/ and the example configuration files in /opt/edg/etc/lcas/. The authorization modules and example authorization plugin will be installed in the modules subdirectory of the directory where the LCAS library is installed.

The path of the modified gatekeeper executable will be /opt/edg/sbin/edg-gatekeeper.

From CVS:
The LCAS library can also be built directly from the cvs repository by the following steps:
