1 jGridstart
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.

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.
