Secure Communication

The Secure Communication component installs, issues, and revokes digital certificates, which are strictly necessary to securely exchange information between ZDMP assets and external resources. From the Security Command Centre UI, the administrator can revoke, renew, and install certificates.

This component includes a Certification Authority (CA) and a Registration Authority (RA). These are the core of this component and is responsible for issuing/revoking certificates and matching identities with certificates, respectively.
