The PrimeKey EJBCA team is pleased to announce the feature release EJBCA 6.11.
EST Protocol Support
EJBCA 6.11 introduces support for the Enrollment over Secure Transport (EST) protocol. For those of you now in the know, EST is an enrollment protocol similar to SCEP. Much like CMP and SCEP, EST can be configured through multiple aliases, and can like CMP also have calls proxied from an RA up a CA using the Peers Protocol. For more information, see EST.
External Command Certificate Validators
The second main feature of this release is the concept of External Validators, a feature which has been widely requested by quite a few of our enterprise users. An External Validator functions much like the existing validators (RSA, CAA, etc), but it runs on either a certificate or pre-certificate object and calls on local script on the local system.
As a security feature we have added a configuration value under System Configuration that disables both the External Validator and the General Purpose Custom Publisher. This configuration value is set to be disabled by default unless you're currently running a General Purpose Custom Publisher in your installation. To prevent a user from using the External Validator to run system commands, we have also added a command whitelist.
Modular Protocol Configuration
We have also added a few of features to make VA/RA installations more secure in the DMZ. In order to guard against possible 0-days or protocol vulnerabilities we have added the Protocol Configuration-tab to System Configuration. Through this tab all incoming protocols or servlets can be disabled.
Additionally, new access rules now allow prohibiting CMP and WS calls being sent from the RA/VA to the CA via Peers, in case the RA/VA runs the risk of being compromised.
Default OCSP Signature Algorithms Change
We have updated the VA so that SHA1WithRSA and SHA1WithECDSA are no longer acceptable signature algorithms for an OCSP responder. Fore details, see EJBCA 6.11 Upgrade Notes.
