The following is a list of open source technologies that relate to the Dogtag project.
The NSS (Network Security Services) cryptography libraries perform all the crypto operations in Dogtag. These libraries trace their roots back to the original SSL libraries Netscape wrote when it invented SSL. Here are some NSS pages you find interesting:
- The NSS main project page.
- An overview of the features in NSS.
- Information about NSS FIPS 140 validations. FIPS 140 is an important government standard for cryptography.
- You can get the source for NSS here.
The AEP (Auto-Enrollment Proxy) server translates Micosoft's proprietary certificate enrollment process into one that Dogtag CAs can understand.
You can visit the main AEP page here.
