ContrailOnlineCAService 0.1.0

Certificate Authority Web Service

Provides a simple web service interface to a Certificate Authority. This is suitable for use as a SLCS (Short-Lived Credential Service).

The interface is implemented as a WSGI application which fronts a Certificate Authority. The Certificate Authority is implemented with the ContrailCA package also available from PyPI.

Web service call can be made to request an X.509 certificate. The web service interface is RESTful and uses GET and POST operations. The service should be hosted over HTTPS. Client authentication is configurable to the required means using any WSGI-compatible filters including repoze.who. An application is included which uses HTTP Basic Auth to pass username/password credentials. SSL client-based authentication can also be used. A client is available with the ContrailOnlineCAClient package also available from PyPI.

The code has been developed for the Contrail Project, http://contrail-project.eu/
