What: 

Description:

Project 129 - Wallet Implementation provided a wallet system which supports SSH host keys and X.509 certificates.

Every DICE machine in Informatics now stores its SSH host keys in wallet, but X.509 certificates are not yet being stored there owing both to uncertainty about exactly what it is that we want to store, and the lack of easy-to-use documentation and interface software. This project aims to plug those gaps.

Deliverables:

  1. Documentation which specifies exactly how X.509 certificates are to be handled in the Informatics wallet system.
  2. Any interface s/w necessary as a result of point 1.
  3. Any other corresponding enhancements to our wallet implementation as deemed necessary.
Why: 

Customer: All COs, as well as anybody else within Informatics who has a requirement to safely store and restore X.509 certificates.

Case statement: As for the precursor Wallet Implementation project

When: 

Status:

Timescales: Wallet itself is fairly well understood. There is effort required effort to get back up to speed with it, to figure out what our internal standards for X.509 certificates should be, and then to provide the necessary. Estimate 4 weeks.
