    CA Keys Import using Conductor

    What

    The Virtuoso Conductor allows easy import of user-level CA (Certificate Authority) Keys through System Admin -> User Accounts -> Edit.

    Why

    The dba user (typically) or other users may need CA keys to execute different services.

    For ODS, the dba user must import a certificate with primary key and with name id_rsa. The process takes the following steps:

    1. A signing authority (e.g., RSA Labs) generates a site certificate.
    2. The site certificate is used to generate certificates for ODS users.
    3. The site certificate is imported with name id_rsa for user dba using the Conductor.



    4. As a result, the ODS user certificates can be authenticated against the site certificate.

    If there is a service that requires a different key, the Conductor can be used to import another certificate for the relevant user.

    How

    You can use a Key from a global signing authority or produce a self-signed key using the ODS Identity Manager.

    Details and more information how to generate the key you can find here.
