CA software and HSM's used


#1

I’ve worked for multiple Dutch CA’s and was wondering what kind of software LE uses on the backend? Is it standard software like EJBCA or DogTag (RHCS) or a custom set of services?

Also, which models of HSM’s are used? Safenet, Thales, etc?


Open-source HSM

The CA software is called boulder, and it’s open source! :wink:

According to this blog post, the HSMs are from Gemalto.

Ah that is amazingly cool, the code is out there. Will look in to that, thank you.

I might misread the blogpost, but I don’t see a statement that gemalto delivers the actual hardware, just that they’re a sponsor?
