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


User Experience

With this full featured PKI (public key infrastructure) server, users will have the ability to:

  • Issue digital certificates for use by other parties
  • Support all aspects of certificate lifecycle management
  • Handle Key archival
  • Manage the OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol)
  • Handle Smartcard management
