2     ----------
3    
4     jGridstart is a graphical user interface in Java that helps grid end-users
5     to request, obtain, install and renew grid certificates in a friendly way.
6    
7     Grid certificate authorities (who issue certificates) can use it to provide
8     a friendly interface to its services. It is currently tailored for the
9     DutchGrid certificate authority, but the plan is to make it more general.
10    
11     For more information, please visit http://jgridstart.nikhef.nl/
12    
13    
14     Adapting jGridstart for a new certificate authority requires:
15    
16     1. Modifying the configuration in resources/conf/global.properties
17     See comments in the file.
18    
19     2. Selection of a CA interface
20     The nl.nikhef.jgridstart.ca package contains the interface CA, which
21     provides an interface between jGridstart and the CA. The specific
22     implementation used is specified in the global configuration file.
23     You probably need to write one tailored to your CA interface. Please
24     see DutchGridCA, TestCA and LocalCA for examples. Please send us your
25     implementation so we can add it to jGridstart.
26    
27     3. Customization of the request wizard
28     The RequestWizard (in package nl.nikhef.jgridstart.gui) contains the
29     user-interface logic for requesting/renew certificates. The contents
30     of the wizard's pages are present in the files requestwizard-xx.html.
31     Currently, one would need to rewrite RequestWizard for your specific
32     request process. In the future this should become more easily
33     customizable.
34    
35     4. Specification of organisations for which one can signup
36     In resources/conf/cert_signup.conf, see comments in that file.
37     At the moment one also needs to update CertificateRequest#postFillData
38     (in package nl.nikhef.jgridstart) and specify how to create a full
39     DN from user information. This is scheduled for improvement as well.
