Presentation Transcript
progress
Progress
  • Application for Certificate is done
  • CREN certificate has been created and is installed in the Georgia Tech Certificate Authority offline
  • Security Policy Committee for the campus has met two times to begin discussions.
  • Applications utilizing the certificates are under way
  • Document, document, document
why certificates
Why Certificates?
  • Current apps have no common authentication and authorization model.
  • Need for a common layer of AAA to reduce complexity for growth.
  • Certificates in conjunction with SSL, IPSEC, and Kerberos provide a model for a significant number of applications both current and future
slide4
Plan
  • Create GT Certificate Authority - done
  • Interface with Kerberos to create initial instance of a Registration Authority - done
  • Create practices for managing the CA - in progress
  • Create classes of certificates and define use and appropriate lifetimes - soon
  • Define apps and appropriate cert model - coming
  • Create and document local policy - in parallel
  • Educate our constituency - forever
applications
Applications
  • Remote Access - from any ISP into campus
  • Authenticated wireless and walk-up access
  • SSL encryption and logging via 2-way certs on web enabled apps (WebObjects, etc)
  • Secure E-mail? Via SSL or Kerberos? Or certs directly?
middleware needed
Middleware needed?
  • Interfacing with Kerberos as Registration Authority for class 3 cert issuing application via web - Jeff Schiller model - current but needs some hardening… Create our Registration Authority for other cert classes?
  • LDAP interfacing for CRL and Public Key storage/access
  • FreeSWAN mods to accept certs for VPNs on Linux? Other platforms?
futures
Futures
  • Work with State governmental agencies in Georgia and beyond
  • Work with University System Board of Regents for Education model of security
  • Work with JSTOR for certificate based authentication for faculty access to databases
to be done
To Be Done...
  • Designate classes of certs for campus use:
    • Class 1 - business office and finance class?
    • Class 2 - general GT server certificates?
    • Class 3 - remote access and student general purpose only (if we issued a cert it’s good for something)
  • Designate lifetimes for these cert classes
  • Create CRLs and LDAP interfaces to complete the model (Middleware)
  • Create apps that really check expiration and CRLs
  • Policy stuff… and documentation
