Managing Certificates in Oracle Solaris

The Key Management Framework (KMF) feature of Oracle Solaris provides tools and programming interfaces for managing public key objects. Public key objects include X.509 certificates and public/private key pairs. The formats for storing these objects can vary. KMF also provides a tool for managing policies that define the use of X.509 certificates by applications. KMF supports third-party plugins. Key management can require manual intervention, such as adding CA certificates to the directory where Oracle Solaris stores them.
