Globus Toolkit End of Support Announcement

Globus would like to assure the community that there are no changes to their ongoing support for the Globus SaaS cloud services at http://www.globus.org or for the Globus Connect software.

At the end of 2017 Globus will discontinue support for the GridFTP server from source or RPM, GSI-OpenSSH, MyProxy, Globus Toolkit client (includes globus-url-copy), GRAM5, and using X.509 credentials to authenticate users. At the end of 2018, Globus will discontinue maintenance and security patches for these capabilities.
