EJBCA 7.4.2 Release Notes
The PrimeKey EJBCA team is pleased to announce the release of EJBCA 7.4.2.
This release brings support for CertBot versions 1.4.0 through 1.6.0 and includes improvements and bug fixes.
Deployment options include EJBCA Hardware Appliance, EJBCA Software Appliance, and EJBCA Cloud.
CertBot 1.4.0 through 1.6.0 supported
EJBCA support for ACME CertBot was limited to version 1.3.0. From this release, EJBCA also supports versions 1.4.0 through 1.6.0.
OCSP Responses no longer include Unspecified reason code
Due to changes in the CA/B Forum Baseline Requirements version 1.7.1, effective as of 2020-09-30, the behavior of the VA has been changed so that OCSP responses where the certificate is revoked with the "Unspecified" reason code, the reply will no longer include the reason code attribute.
Additional RDNs allowed in ACME Requests
In our initial implementation of the ACME protocol, only the CN field and dnsName SANs were processed. In order to allow for the issuance of other types of certificates from ACME, we now allow the inclusion of additional fields by enabling A llow subject DN override using CSR in the certificate profile.

EJBCA 7.4.2 is included in EJBCA Hardware Appliance 3.5.4 and EJBCA Cloud 2.4 and can be deployed as EJBCA Software Appliance.
