How is Futurex RA functionality accessed?

Futurex leverages RA functionality across multiple channels, including through a GUI, an API command set, and a secure web portal. All three options are intended to provide convenience and ease of use for the end user.


Through the client GUI, users can leverage full control of RA functionality. From this tab, users can create, edit, delete, and filter registration authorities; or users could create, edit, delete, revoke, approve, deny, or renew certificate signing requests. Users can anonymously add certificate requests, making it easier for large organizations who do not have the time to create a user account for each user needing to upload CSRs. Additionally, users can oversee every aspect of X.509 extension profiles through creating, modifying, and applying templates. Once certificates have been  signed, users can download them as .pem or .der files.

Web Server

This web portal is accessible from virtually anywhere, so long as there is an internet connection. This is especially beneficial for large organizations because administrators can be assigned to the RA without needing direct access to the HSM. Once two administrators have logged in, the portal is an easy to use web service where one can upload, submit, approve, or deny CSRs. Once the CSRs have been signed, the certificate is returned to the user who can then download the associated certificates. Users can also anonymously upload certificate signing requests through the web portal.

API Commands

A complete set of API commands allows users to manage RAs, X.509 templates, and CSRs. The commands are provided through a technical reference that gives further details and examples of command usage.
