EST over CoAP in EJBCA LRA Software Appliance
EJBCA 8 enables the deployment of a Local Registration Authority (LRA) to issue birth certificates or operational certificates in IIoT and IoT use cases. Resource-constrained devices can enroll for certificates using EST over CoAP, a lightweight protocol for IoT devices. Running EST over CoAP in EJBCA 8 requires using an EJBCA LRA Software Appliance connected to an EJBCA Certificate Authority (CA).
Syslog shipping over TLS
With this release, EJBCA Software Appliance introduces the ability to ship syslog messages securely over TLS, ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of log data during transmission.
Extended notification capabilities
We have enhanced the notification system of EJBCA Software Appliance to include email notifications. You can now configure the system to send email notifications for various events in EJBCA, keeping you informed about activities in your environment.

Improvements and fixes
EJBCA Software Appliance 2.4.1 resolves an issue related to importing Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) with more than 40,000 entries.
An issue regarding TrustWay Proteccio netHSM has also been resolved, enabling the download of the client certificate and utilizing the HSM as intended.
In addition, several minor bug fixes have been addressed to improve system stability and performance.
We have also introduced a hotfix for the syslog rotation, where logs could consume a great deal of disk space and that individual log files could grow to very large sizes, taxing available disk space and causing system performance issues, making it impossible to generate support packages.
