Manage certificates

Certificate usage is mandatory in AI Suite to allow information exchanges in SSL. Certificates are used in three different instances depending on the use case:

  • Tomcat certificates - certificates used at the Tomcat level for InterPlay, Datastore, Designer, etc. They are used to connect to the application but also for all inter component communications, for example, Designer to InterPlay. Moreover, for security reasons, the Web applications cannot start without a valid certificate.
  • PassPort certificates - certificates used to validate the communication between PassPort and the AI Suite component to retrieve users and rights.
  • SSO certificates - certificates used to validate the communication between PassPort and the AI Suite component when using SSO. In this case, there are two sub-cases:
    • Proxy SSO
    • CAS SO
