This EJBCA Introduction covers EJBCA concepts and describes common PKI architectures, an outline of the internal EJBCA architecture, and gives an overview of external OCSP Responders:
View definitions for general and EJBCA specific concepts and key terms.
EJBCA implements Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) according to standards such as X.509 and IETF-PKIX, and thus follows the general PKI concepts closely. The administration of the PKI includes some EJBCA specific concepts in order to implement unique flexibility.
There are multiple ways that you can implement and architect a PKI solution, ranging from simple and low cost, to very complex and costly. EJBCA allows implementing virtually any type of PKI architecture and this covers a selection of common PKI architectures deployed
