The Token Processing System (TPS) is an optional PKI subsystem that acts as a Registration Authority (RA) for authenticating and processing enrollment requests, PIN reset requests, and formatting requests from the Enterprise Security Client (ESC). TPS is designed to communicate with tokens that conform to Global Platform's Open Platform Specification. TPS communicates over SSL with various PKI backend subsystems (including the Certificate Authority (CA), the Key Recovery Authority (KRA), and the Token Key Service (TKS)) to fulfill the user's requests. TPS also interacts with the token database, an LDAP server that stores information about individual tokens. The utility "tpsclient" is a test tool that interacts with TPS. This tool is useful to test TPS server configs without risking an actual smart card. ================================== || 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.
