Package pki-base

Certificate System - PKI Framework

http://pki.fedoraproject.org/

The PKI Framework contains the common and client libraries and utilities
written in Python.  This package is a part of the PKI Core used by the
Certificate System.


==================================
||  ABOUT "CERTIFICATE SYSTEM"  ||
==================================

Certificate System (CS) is an enterprise software system designed
to manage enterprise Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) deployments.

PKI Core contains ALL top-level java-based Tomcat PKI components:

  * pki-symkey
  * pki-base
  * pki-base-python2 (alias for pki-base)
  * pki-base-python3
  * pki-base-java
  * pki-tools
  * pki-server
  * pki-ca
  * pki-kra
  * pki-ocsp
  * pki-tks
  * pki-tps
  * pki-javadoc

which comprise the following corresponding PKI subsystems:

  * Certificate Authority (CA)
  * Key Recovery Authority (KRA)
  * Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) Manager
  * Token Key Service (TKS)
  * Token Processing Service (TPS)

Python clients need only install the pki-base package.  This
package contains the python REST client packages and the client
upgrade framework.

Java clients should install the pki-base-java package.  This package
contains the legacy and REST Java client packages.  These clients
should also consider installing the pki-tools package, which contain
native and Java-based PKI tools and utilities.

Certificate Server instances require the fundamental classes and
modules in pki-base and pki-base-java, as well as the utilities in
pki-tools.  The main server classes are in pki-server, with subsystem
specific Java classes and resources in pki-ca, pki-kra, pki-ocsp etc.

Finally, if Certificate System is being deployed as an individual or
set of standalone rather than embedded server(s)/service(s), it is
strongly recommended (though not explicitly required) to include at
least one PKI Theme package:

  * dogtag-pki-theme (Dogtag Certificate System deployments)
    * dogtag-pki-server-theme
  * redhat-pki-server-theme (Red Hat Certificate System deployments)
    * redhat-pki-server-theme
  * customized pki theme (Customized Certificate System deployments)
    * <customized>-pki-server-theme

  NOTE:  As a convenience for standalone deployments, top-level meta
         packages may be provided which bind a particular theme to
         these certificate server packages.
