EJBCA 6.15.1 Release Notes
We couldn't stay away, so at the same time as the UI is being refurbished and prepared for our coming Common Criteria certification we've been busy adding some neat new features to EJBCA 6.15: Publishers Galore!
Multi Group Publishing
In order to facilitate for users administrating large numbers of publishers referenced in multiple certificate profiles, we've implemented the Multi Group Publisher.
By referencing Multi Group Publishers instead of the affected publishers directly, actions such as adding or removing VAs can quickly permeate throughout all affected certificate profiles. The publisher also allows splitting referenced publishers into groups, which establishes parallel publishing queues.
SCP Publishing and VA Population
Due to popular demand for an alternative to the Peer Publisher in environments where establishing a Peer Connection between CA and VA isn't an option, we've created the SCP Publisher, which publishes certificates and CRLs to a remote location over SCP.
Conversely, in order to import certificates and CRLs exported by the SCP Publisher a VA, we've implemented the Certificate and CRL Reader Service.
GDPR Adapted Legacy VA Publisher
Just like we did for the Peer VA Publisher back in EJBCA 6.13, we've GDPR adapted the Legacy VA Publisher.
By enabling the new Don't store certificate meta data option at the bottom, VA publishing can be performed without writing any identifying information to the VA.
Revocation Time added to CertSafe Publisher
The output of the CertSafe Publisher has been amended to include revocation time.
EJBCA Compatibility Guide
A long requested feature, we've now started maintaining a compatibility guide in the documentation in regards to compatibility and testing status of JDKs, Application Servers, databases, HSMs, etc. For more information, see EJBCA Compatibility Guide.
As a minor release, the upgrade steps to EJBCA 6.15.1 are the same as to EJBCA 6.15. For upgrade instructions and information on upgrade paths, see Upgrading EJBCA
