This is the first article in the series where we would like to focus on the integration of Red Hat Certificate System (RHCS) and ForgeRock OpenDJ.
We will start with the simplest use case – using OpenDJ as a publishing directory for RHCS Certificate Authority (CA). When you are running a Certificate Authority, the certificates have to be published typically in a LDAP directory which stores user information. The scenario would be:
- the company has a corporate LDAP directory running on OpenDJ which stores the information about the employee and client identity (and has to associate it respective user accounts with their digital certificates);
- RHCS is introduced to manage (and publish) digital certificates for the existing accounts.
