ADSS Certificate Authority (CA) Server offers certificate lifecycle services using a flexible web services interface. Using this simple XML/SOAP web services interface, the key generation and certification services can be easily integrated within a business application or used with a ADSS Registration Authority (RA) Server or even with 3rd party RA systems such as specialist smartcard management systems.
ADSS CA Server is a certified PKI Server to meet the CWA 14167-1 requirements for trustworthy systems making it suitable for use by Qualified Certificate Service Providers (CSPs).
ADSS CA Server
ADSS CA Server can be used to set-up a Root CA and one or more Subordinate CAs from the same instance. Alternatively, ADSS CA Server can be used as an off-line Root CA or an existing Root CA can be utilised. ADSS Server can also receive local requests and securely route these to another high–trust central CA instance if required.
Often business applications already have an established Know Your Customer (KYC) registration process. Such business applications can act as very effective Registration Authorities (RAs) and easily integrate with ADSS CA Server using configurable registration and certification processes.
ADSS CA Server uses certification profiles to define the algorithms, ley-lengths, certificate lifetime and other important parameters. Automatic certificate and key renewal is supported. Multiple profiles are supported to meet a variety of business requirements.
