Generate an X.509 Certificate (with a WebID watermark) to be managed by the Firefox browser-based keystore
These steps will work against any ODS instance where you have the requisite privileges.
- Go to the ODS home page (local or remote) and log in as an ODS user (registering as such first, if necessary).
- After log in, you will have an ODS-generated Person Entity Identifier (an HTTP URI that Identifies "You") of the form:
- Fill out your profile, if still in default state.
(Note: If this step is skipped, the resulting X.509 certificate may not have a human-readable name.)
- Go to Security:
- Go to Certificate Generator:
- Fill out the form, for example:
- Click Submit certificate request.
- Firefox should show that it is generating a private key:
- When private key generation is finished, Firefox should report a successful installation of the certificate:
- Go to X.509 Certificates.
- The new certificate should be shown in the list of certificates available for the ODS user:
- Note you have now also the option automatic WebID Login set to enabled -- a powerful feature benefits of which we will demonstrate next in our example:
- Verify the new certificate by performing the following steps:
- Log out and access https://id.myopenlink.net/ods/;
- When prompted by your browser, select the new certificate generated above:
- You should then be presented with the ODS Log-in form.
Click WebID Login:
- You should now be successfully logged in:
- If you now log in as another user (e.g.,
demo), you can share a resource to the above user, using a WebID-based ACL, which is itself enabled by the new WebID-watermarked X.509 Certificate.
