Dogtag Certificate System is an enterprise software system designed to manage enterprise Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) deployments.
 +
 
 +
This full-featured PKI solution includes a complete Smartcard Management system as well as support for all aspects of certificate lifecycle management including:
 +
 
 +
* '''Certificate Authority (CA)'''
 +
** A required PKI subsystem which issues, renews, revokes, and publishes certificates as well as compiling and publishing Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs). The Dogtag Certificate Authority can be configured as a self-signing Certificate Authority (CA), where it is the root CA, or it can act as a subordinate CA, where it obtains its own signing certificate from a public CA.
 +
 
 +
* '''Data Recovery Manager (DRM)'''
 +
** An optional PKI subsystem that can act as a Key Recovery Authority (KRA).  When configured in conjunction with the Dogtag Certificate Authority, the Dogtag Data Recovery Manager stores private encryption keys as part of the certificate enrollment process.  The key archival mechanism is triggered when a user enrolls in the PKI and creates the certificate request.  Using the Certificate Request Message Format (CRMF) request format, a request is generated for the user's private encryption key.  This key is then stored in the Dogtag Data Recovery Manager which is configured to store keys in an encrypted format that can only be decrypted by several agents requesting the key at one time, providing for protection of the public encryption keys for the users in the PKI deployment.
 +
** Note that the Dogtag Data Recovery Manager archives encryption keys; it does not archive signing keys, since such archival would undermine nonrepudiation properties of signing keys.
 +
 
 +
* '''Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) Manager'''
 +
** An optional PKI subsystem that can act as a stand-alone Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) service. The Dogtag Online Certificate Status Protocol Manager performs the task of an online certificate validation authority by enabling OCSP-compliant clients to do real-time verification of certificates.  Note that an online certificate-validation authority is often referred to as an OCSP Responder.
 +
** Although the Dogtag Certificate Authority is already configured with an internal OCSP service.  An external OCSP Responder is offered as a separate subsystem in case the user wants the OCSP service provided outside of a firewall while the Dogtag Certificate Authority resides inside of a firewall, or to take the load of requests off of the Dogtag Certificate Authority.
 +
** The Dogtag Online Certificate Status Protocol Manager can receive Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) from multiple Dogtag Certificate Authority servers, and clients can query the Dogtag Online Certificate Status Protocol Manager for the revocation status of certificates issued by all of these Dogtag Certificate Authority servers.
 +
** When an instance of Dogtag Online Certificate Status Protocol Manager is set up with an instance of Dogtag Certificate Authority, and publishing is set up to this Dogtag Online Certificate Status Protocol Manager, CRLs are published to it whenever they are issued or updated.
 +
 
 +
* '''Registration Authority (RA)'''
 +
** An optional PKI subsystem that acts as a front-end for authenticating and processing enrollment requests, PIN reset requests, and formatting requests.
 +
**  Dogtag Registration Authority communicates over SSL with the Dogtag Certificate Authority to fulfill the user's requests.
 +
 
 +
* '''Token Key Service (TKS)'''
 +
** An optional PKI subsystem that manages the master key(s) and the transport key(s) required to generate and distribute keys for hardware tokens.  Dogtag Token Key Service provides the security between tokens and an instance of Dogtag Token Processing System, where the security relies upon the relationship between the master key and the token keys.  A Dogtag Token Processing System communicates with a Dogtag Token Key Service over SSL using client authentication.
 +
** Dogtag Token Key Service helps establish a secure channel (signed and encrypted) between the token and the Dogtag Token Processing System, provides proof of presence of the security token during enrollment, and supports key changeover when the master key changes on the Dogtag Token Key Service.  Tokens with older keys will get new token keys.
 +
** Because of the sensitivity of the data that Dogtag Token Key Service manages, Dogtag Token Key Service should be set up behind the firewall with restricted access.
 +
 
 +
* '''Token Processing System (TPS)'''
 +
** 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).
 +
** Dogtag Token Processing System is designed to communicate with tokens that conform to Global Platform's Open Platform Specification.
 +
** Dogtag Token Processing System communicates over SSL with various PKI backend subsystems (including the Dogtag Certificate Authority, the Dogtag Data Recovery Manager, and the Dogtag Token Key Service) to fulfill the user's requests.
 +
** Dogtag Token Processing System also interacts with the token database, an LDAP server that stores information about individual tokens.
  
* Issue digital certificates for use by other parties
+
* '''Enterprise Security Client (ESC)'''
* Support all aspects of certificate lifecycle management
+
** Enterprise Security Client allows the user to enroll and manage their cryptographic smartcards.
* Handle Key archival
+
** The ESC client is available on Linux, Macintosh, and Windows platforms.
* Manage the OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol)
+
* Handle Smartcard management

[edit] How To Test

Hardware Requirements

At least Intel Pentium 4 or faster with 1GB RAM and 10GB disk

System Prep

Update system with all the latest Fedora packages

Testing and Expected Results

The following list of tests is not comprehensive by any means and not in any order but will give the user the means and the ideas of how to test a PKI system:

  • Install pki-ca,pki-kra,pki-ocsp,pki-tps,pki-tks packages via yum
  • Follow the default instance creation procedures to create a base instance of the various sub-systems.
  • Once the setup is complete, perform these tests:
    • Issue different types of certificates like user certs, server certs
    • Revoke a few certificates
    • Generate a CRL
    • Customize profiles based on different types of extensions and constraints
      • Generate certs to have say for example an AIA extension
    • Submit a CRL to the OCSP responder
    • Check Java Console access
      • Use the Java console to perform various configuration updates such as;
        • Adding/editing/deleting additional CRL issuing points
        • ACL configurations
        • Adding/editing/deleting profiles
        • Log file configurations
    • Certificate enrollment via different types of browsers such as IE and Firefox
    • Smartcard enrollment and format operations
