The PrimeKey EJBCA team is pleased to announce the release of EJBCA 7.8.1.
This release has seen a primary focus on improving our REST API, as well as further integration with the Microsoft ecosystem.
REST API Improvements
ConfigDump over REST
Our ConfigDump tool, used to manage and audit EJBCA configurations through human-readable YAML, can now be accessed over REST, both for export and import. This allows easy use of the ConfigDump tool for the Hardware and Software Appliances, Cloud and other platforms without command-line interface access.
New REST calls and improvements
- End Entity Search extended with MODIFIED_DATE.
- Added pagination to certificate search endpoint.
- Added a new certificate enrollment endpoint that prioritizes predefined end entity values over values defined in the CSR.
- Added End Entity Profile and Certificate Profile names to the search results of certificate searches.
For more information, see EJBCA REST Interface.
EJBCA Roles can be populated through Azure Active Directory
EJBCA's roles can now have its members populated by corresponding Active Directory Groups through Azure Role Based Authentication (RBAC). What this means is that when using Azure as an OAuth provider for authenticating to EJBCA, role members don't need to be manually populated but can instead be automatically read from existing AD Groups. For more information, see Integrating EJBCA with Azure AD Role Based Authentication (RBAC).
Integration with Microsoft Application Insights
Application Insights is an Application Performance Management (APM) service hosted in the Azure cloud platform that allows DevOps professionals to monitor live applications. By integrating Application Insights and EJBCA, administrators can monitor the performance and availability of their EJBCA servers. For more information, see Integrating EJBCA with Azure Application Insights.
Domain Allow List Validator
By popular request, we've added a companion Domain Allow List Validator to the existing Domain Block List Validator. Performing the exact opposite role, this new validator restricts dnsName field domains to whatever subset is defined. For more information, see Certificate Field Validators.
URIs Added as Name Constraints
In addition to constraints on DNS Name and IP Address, we've added name constraints for URIs. For more information on name constraints, see CA Fields.
Sunset of ejbca-setup.sh Script
We are sunsetting the ejbca-setup.sh quick installation script and associated documentation to decrease the maintenance load and consolidate the installation paths. If you're currently relying on this script, we recommend you migrate your workflows.
Basic HTTP Authentication for EST
When using EST in client mode, it's now possible to authenticate over HTTP with username/password.
Bouncy Castle Upgraded to Version 1.70
Just in time to make this release, we upgraded Bouncy Castle to the latest version.
Support for Oracle19C
We have implemented support for the Oracle 19C database
Added Granularity to Certificate Transparency Configuration
Due to CT Policy Updates in Apple's Root Program, the configuration of the number of required Signed Certificate Timestamps (SCTs) per time interval has been made fully granular.
Possible to add empty dnsName values and URIs as Name Constraints
As per name constraints discussions in the CA/Browser Forum Validation Working Group, we've added the ability to add an empty DNS name to name constraints. Adding this value constrains a Sub CA from issuing any certificates containing dnsName SAN values. For more information on name constraints, see CA Fields. We've also taken the chance to add URIs as possible Name Constraint values.
