pam_pkcs11 doesn't support the OCSP Trusted Responder trust model
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:59:35 EDT
Description of problem:
pam_pkcs11 doesn't support self-signed OCSP certificates. The DoD OCSP service
uses the Trusted Responder model, using a self-signed certificate. This model
is supported by NSS but is not the default. pam_pkcs11 needs a configuration
option to enable the Trusted Responder model and select the Trusted Responder
All definitive response messages SHALL be digitally signed. The key
used to sign the response MUST belong to one of the following:
-- the CA who issued the certificate in question
-- a Trusted Responder whose public key is trusted by the requester
-- a CA Designated Responder (Authorized Responder) who holds a
specially marked certificate issued directly by the CA, indicating
that the responder may issue OCSP responses for that CA
