Sigul Client Setup SOP
This document describes how to configure a sigul client. For more information on sigul, please see User:Mitr.
- Install sigul and its dependencies. It is available in both Fedora and EPEL:
# yum install sigul
- Ensure that your koji certificate and the Fedora CA certificate are present on the system that you're running the sigul client from at the following locations:
- admin privileges on koji are required to write signatures.
- If you are running RHEL 6, add 'export NSS_HASH_ALG_SUPPORT=+MD5' to your ~/.bashrc.
- Run sigul_setup_client
- Choose a password for your NSS database. By default this will be stored on-disk in ~/.sigul/client.conf.
- Choose an export password. You will only need to remember it until finishing sigul_setup_client.
- Enter the DB password you chose earlier, then the export password. You should see the message "pk12util: PKCS12 IMPORT SUCCESSFUL"
- Enter the DB password again. You should see the message "Done".
- Assuming that you are running the sigul client within phx2, edit ~/.sigul/client.conf to include the following lines:
[client] bridge-hostname: sign-bridge1 server-hostname: sign-vault1
Configuration for Secondary Architectures
All steps remain the same, however you will need admin privileges on your secondary koji instance (not primary's). When editing ~/sigul/client.conf, use:
[client] bridge-hostname: secondary-signer server-hostname: secondary-signer-server
Updating your Fedora certificate
When your Fedora certificate expires, after updating it run the following commands:
$ certutil -d ~/.sigul -D -n sigul-client-cert $ NSS_HASH_ALG_SUPPORT=+md5 sigul_setup_client
