Configure an RA for Public Access

An RA can be configured for public access using a PublicAccessAuthenticationToken . This allows anyone to navigate to /ejbca/ra without having to present a certificate.

The CA Web (/ejbca/adminweb) cannot be configured for Public Access since accessing the CA Web requires a certificate.

You can configure an RA for public access either using the Admin Web or the EJBCA CLI:

  • To configure an RA for public access, go to /ejbca/adminweb/administratorprivileges/roles.xhtml and add a new member to any role. The member should have Match with set to one of the following:

    • PublicAccessAuthenticationToken : Any transport (HTTP or HTTPS)

    • PublicAccessAuthenticationToken: Non-confidential transport (HTTP)

    • PublicAccessAuthenticationToken: Confidential transport (HTTPS)

  • To configure the RA for public access using the CLI, run the following:

    ./ roles addrolemember --caname "" --role "RA Administrator Role" --value "" --with PublicAccessAuthenticationToken:TRANSPORT_ANY
