System Requirements

Operating systems

ADSS Server is a JEE application and is supported on the following platforms (ask about support for others). The following 64bit operating systems are supported (32bit on request)

Windows Server 2016, 2012 R2, 2012
Linux (RedHat 6.x, SuSe, Centos, others)
Solaris 11 (x86 only)

Support for Solaris x64 and Windows/ Linux 32 bit operating systems can be made available on request – email sales@ascertia.com explaining the requirement. Physical and Virtualised systems are supported.

Databases

ADSS Server saves its configuration and transactional data in a database, the following databases are supported

Microsoft SQL Server 2016, 2014, 2012 (Express, Web Edition or Enterprise)
Azure SQL Database (Database-as-a-service)
Oracle 12c, 11gR2, 10g
PostgreSQL v9.x, v8.x
MySQL v5.x

About 1GB of database space is required to store the service logs from 100,000 transactions for each service unless these are regularly auto-archived or customised.

DMZ proxy systems (optional)

Where a DMZ proxy is used, the following DMZ proxy machines are supported:

Windows Server + IIS 8.0 or Apache or IBM HTTP Server
Linux + Apache or IBM HTTP Server

Use a reasonable CPU, 2GB RAM,100 MB disk space

Business applications (systems sending service requests to ADSS Server)

Business applications can be integrated with ADSS Server using these approaches:

Using OASIS DSS web service calls (See ADSS Server WSDL developer documentation)
Using ADSS Client SDK Java API with JDK 1.5.0_06 or above
Using ADSS Client SDK .NET API with Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 or above
Using Auto File Processor to monitor one or more file folders

HSMs (optional)

The following Hardware Security Modules are supported:

Gemalto/ SafeNet Luna and ProtectServer HSMs
Thales nShield Solo or Conect HSMs
Utimaco HSMs
Microsoft Azure Key Vault HSM
Amazon AWS Cloud HSM

ADSS Server can also use PKCS#11 compliant smartcard(s) and secure USB token(s) as slow HSMs. Other PKCS#11 v2.x compliant HSMs should also work and an interoperability test utility is provided.

Operator browsers

The following Internet browsers are supported for accessing the ADSS Admin web console:

Internet Explorer (IE) 9+
Microsoft Edge 28+
Firefox 25+
Google Chrome 30+

Minimum hardware requirements

A modern multi-core CPU such as the Xeon E3-xxxx or E5-xxxx or E55xx or E56xx or similar are recommended, with 8GB RAM (min 4GB RAM) and 2GB disk space. Additional RAM may be required to power signing or LTANS archive services. Roughly 0.5GB to 1GB of disk space is required to keep the trace logs per 100,000 service transactions.
The database can be run on a separate server if preferred. This is recommended for high performance environments to allow all server resources to be directed to ADSS Server services. For this:
A modern multi-core CPU such as theXeon E3-xxxx or E5-xxxx or E55xx or E56xx or similar are recommended, with 8GB RAM, typically 5-10GB or more of disk space will be required depending on usage and transactional data / log retention requirements.
