Description

TPS connector provides a mechanism for TPS to communicate with other PKI subsystems. There are three supported connector types: CA, KRA, and TKS. The connectors are defined using properties in the TPS configuration file.

Ca Connector

A CA connector is defined using properties that begin with tps.connector.ca<n> where n is a positive integer indicating the ID of the CA connector.

tps.connector.ca<n>.enable

This property contains a boolean value indicating whether the connector is enabled.

tps.connector.ca<n>.host

In no-failover configuration, the property contains the hostname of the CA.

In failover configuration, the property contains a list of hostnames and port numbers of the CA subsystems. The format is hostname:port separated by spaces.

tps.connector.ca<n>.port

In no-failover configuration, the property contains the port number of the CA.

tps.connector.ca<n>.nickName

This property contains the nickname of the TPS subsystem certificate for SSL client authentication to the CA.

tps.connector.ca<n>.minHttpConns

This property contains the minimum number of HTTP connections.

tps.connector.ca<n>.maxHttpConns

This property contains the maximum number of HTTP connections.

tps.connector.ca<n>.uri.<op>

This property contains the URI to contact CA for the operation <op>. Example ops: enrollment, renewal, revoke, unrevoke, getcert.

tps.connector.ca<n>.timeout

This property contains the connection timeout.

tps.connector.connCAList

This property is used for Revocation Routing. It contains a list of ordered ca id's separated by ',' that the revocation attempt should be made to. Example: tps.connCAList=ca1,ca2

tps.connector.ca<n>.caNickname

This property is used for Revocation Routing. It contains the nickname of the CA signing certificate that represents this ca<n>.

tps.connector.ca<n>.caSKI

This property is used for Revocation Routing . It contains the Subject Key Identifier of the CA signing certificate of this ca<n>. This value is automatically calculated by TPS once and should not need handling by the administrator.

Kra Connector

A KRA connector is defined using properties that begin with tps.connector.kra<n> where n is a positive integer indicating the ID of the KRA connector.

tps.connector.kra<n>.enable

This property contains a boolean value indicating whether the connector is enabled.

tps.connector.kra<n>.host

In no-failover configuration, the property contains the hostname of the KRA.

In failover configuration, the property contains a list of hostnames and port numbers of the KRA subsystems. The format is hostname:port separated by spaces.

tps.connector.kra<n>.port

In no-failover configuration, the property contains the port number of the KRA.

tps.connector.kra<n>.nickName

This property contains the nickname of the TPS subsystem certificate for SSL client authentication to the KRA.

tps.connector.kra<n>.minHttpConns

This property contains the minimum number of HTTP connections.

tps.connector.kra<n>.maxHttpConns

This property contains the maximum number of HTTP connections.

tps.connector.kra<n>.uri.<op>

This property contains the URI to contact KRA for the operation <op>. Example ops: GenerateKeyPair, TokenKeyRecovery.

tps.connector.kra<n>.timeout

This property contains the connection timeout.

Tks Connector

A TKS connector is defined using properties that begin with tps.connector.tks<n> where n is a positive integer indicating the ID of the TKS connector.

tps.connector.tks<n>.enable

This property contains a boolean value indicating whether the connector is enabled.

tps.connector.tks<n>.host

In no-failover configuration, the property contains the hostname of the TKS.

In failover configuration, the property contains a list of hostnames and port numbers of the TKS subsystems. The format is hostname:port separated by spaces.

tps.connector.tks<n>.port

In no-failover configuration, the property contains the port number of the TKS.

tps.connector.tks<n>.nickName

This property contains the nickname of the TPS subsystem certificate for SSL client authentication to the TKS.

tps.connector.tks<n>.minHttpConns

This property contains the minimum number of HTTP connections.

tps.connector.tks<n>.maxHttpConns

This property contains the maximum number of HTTP connections.

tps.connector.tks<n>.uri.<op>

This property contains the URI to contact TKS for the operation <op>. Example ops: computeRandomData, computeSessionKey, createKeySetData, encryptData.

tps.connector.tks<n>.timeout

This property contains the connection timeout.

tps.connector.tks<n>.generateHostChallenge

This property contains a boolean value indicating whether to generate host challenge.

tps.connector.tks<n>.serverKeygen

This property contains a boolean value indicating whether to generate keys on server side.

tps.connector.tks<n>.keySet

This property contains the key set to be used on TKS.

tps.connector.tks<n>.tksSharedSymKeyName

This property contains the shared secret key name.
