7. Authentication

7.1. Technology Previews

The certmonger service aims to manage certificates on behalf of services running on client systems. It warns administrators when a certificate which it has been asked to watch is nearing the end of its validity period, and can be told to attempt to automatically obtain a new certificate when this happens. It supports certificates and private keys stored in either PEM or NSS database formats. It can interact with CAs running either IPA or certmaster, and is intended to be extensible to support other implementations.
IPA is an integrated solution to provide centrally managed Identity (machine,user, virtual machines, groups, authentication credentials). This package includes client-side functionality that when combined with a supported server can be used to provide features like kerberized sshd.
