Request Browser Certificate Renewal

If renewal is enabled there is an extra link under Enroll on the public web page called Renew Browser Certificate. The page requires authentication with a client certificate and makes it possible for the user to request the certificate to be renewed.

Renewal will result in the status of the end entity being set to NEW and the password set to an auto-generated password. The end entity must have notifications set or the password will be unretrievable.

The renewal functionality is provided in a separate web module called renew.war which is not deployed and linked to by default. It can be enabled in conf/web.properties by setting web.renewalenabled=true and then (re-)deploy EJBCA.
