#732 Provide description of manual procedure which will allow to request new transport certificate
Closed: Fixed None Opened 10 years ago by awnuk.

This is part of ticket #129 - RFE: Add support for multiple DRM transport keys.

This ticket will provide description of manual procedure which will allow to request new transport certificate.

[[br]] Base on discussion with Nathan (nkinder) scope of this feature has been significantly reduced by only providing ability for DRM to support two transport keys: current key and new key. DRM will provide ability to automatically distinguish between its transport keys during archival process.

All other processes will be covered by manual procedures. This includes:

  • requesting new transport certificate
  • obtaining issued certificate
  • importing of new transport certificate and keys to DRM's NSS DB
  • updating of DRM configuration to reflect existence of new transport certificate and keys
  • propagation of new transport certificate and keys to DRM clones
  • replacement of the current transport certificate and keys during process of transfer of the new transport certificate and keys to become the current one.
  • propagation of new transport certificate to all CAs communicating with updated DRM (including CAs' clones)

Above list of procedures may grow.

Please note that all manual procedures are requiring subsystem restarts which are resulting in service interruptions.

Here is how to request DRM transport certificate:

  • Stop DRM [[br]] systemctl stop pki-tomcatd@pki-tomcat.service
  • Go to DRM's NSS DB directory [[br]] cd /etc/pki/pki-tomcat/alias
  • Create subdirectory [[br]] mkdir saved</pre>and save all NSS DB files<pre>cp *.db saved/
  • Create new request by running the following [[br]] PKCS10Client command<pre>PKCS10Client -p <password> d '.' -o 'req.txt' -n 'CN=DRM Transport 2 Certificate,O=example.com Security Domain' [[br]] or [[br]] certutil -d . -R -k rsa -g 2048 -s 'CN=DRM Transport 2 Certificate,O=example.com Security Domain' -f <password-file> -a -o <transport-certificate-request-file>
  • Start DRM [[br]] systemctl start pki-tomcatd@pki-tomcat.service
  • Submit transport certificate request on Manual Data Recovery Manager Transport Certificate Enrollment page
  • Wait for agent approval of submitted request to retrieve certificate by checking request status on EE retrieval page
