The PKI Server Framework is required by the following four PKI subsystems:
the Certificate Authority (CA),
the Key Recovery Authority (KRA),
the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) Manager,
the Token Key Service (TKS), and
the Token Processing Service (TPS).
This package is a part of the PKI Core used by the Certificate System.
The package contains scripts to create and remove PKI subsystems.
|| 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-base-python2 (alias for pki-base)
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
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)
* redhat-pki-server-theme (Red Hat Certificate System deployments)
* customized pki theme (Customized Certificate System deployments)
NOTE: As a convenience for standalone deployments, top-level meta
packages may be provided which bind a particular theme to
these certificate server packages.
