NAME


crypto_certs - directory for certificate files for Solaris Cryptographic
Framework

SYNOPSIS


/etc/crypto/certs/CA


/etc/crypto/certs/SUNWobjectCA


/etc/crypto/certs/*


DESCRIPTION


The /etc/crypto/certs directory contains ASN.1 BER or PEM encoded
certificate files for use by the Solaris Cryptographic Framework.


A default installation contains root anchors and signing certificates.
The CA and SUNWobjectCA certificates are the trust anchors for all other
certificates. Other certificates contain the certificates used to sign
and verify the Solaris user and kernel cryptographic plug-ins


Additional signing certificates may be installed by third-party
cryptographic providers. They should either be copied to
/etc/crypto/certs or included in the package that delivers the provider.


Only certificates that are issued by the CA or SUNWobjectCA certificates
and include the organization unit "Solaris Cryptographic Framework" in
their subject distinguished names are accepted by the Solaris
Cryptographic Framework. This restriction is in place due to US Export
Law on the export of open cryptographic interfaces at the time of
shipping this revision of the product.
