5.9. Connectors

Connectors define how the TPS communicates with other subsystems - namely CA, KRA, and TKS. In general, these parameters are set up during TPS installation. The following is an example of connector configuration:
tps.connector.ca1.enable=true
tps.connector.ca1.host=host1.EXAMPLE.com
tps.connector.ca1.maxHttpConns=15
tps.connector.ca1.minHttpConns=1
tps.connector.ca1.nickName=subsystemCert cert-pki-tomcat
tps.connector.ca1.port=8443
tps.connector.ca1.timeout=30
tps.connector.ca1.uri.enrollment=/ca/ee/ca/profileSubmitSSLClient
tps.connector.ca1.uri.getcert=/ca/ee/ca/displayBySerial
tps.connector.ca1.uri.renewal=/ca/ee/ca/profileSubmitSSLClient
tps.connector.ca1.uri.revoke=/ca/ee/subsystem/ca/doRevoke
tps.connector.ca1.uri.unrevoke=/ca/ee/subsystem/ca/doUnrevoke
tps.connector.kra1.enable=true
tps.connector.kra1.host=host1.EXAMPLE.com
tps.connector.kra1.maxHttpConns=15
tps.connector.kra1.minHttpConns=1
tps.connector.kra1.nickName=subsystemCert cert-pki-tomcat
tps.connector.kra1.port=8443
tps.connector.kra1.timeout=30
tps.connector.kra1.uri.GenerateKeyPair=/kra/agent/kra/GenerateKeyPair
tps.connector.kra1.uri.TokenKeyRecovery=/kra/agent/kra/TokenKeyRecovery
tps.connector.tks1.enable=true
tps.connector.tks1.generateHostChallenge=true
tps.connector.tks1.host=host1.EXAMPLE.com
tps.connector.tks1.keySet=defKeySet
tps.connector.tks1.maxHttpConns=15
tps.connector.tks1.minHttpConns=1
tps.connector.tks1.nickName=subsystemCert cert-pki-tomcat
tps.connector.tks1.port=8443
tps.connector.tks1.serverKeygen=true
tps.connector.tks1.timeout=30
tps.connector.tks1.tksSharedSymKeyName=sharedSecret
tps.connector.tks1.uri.computeRandomData=/tks/agent/tks/computeRandomData
tps.connector.tks1.uri.computeSessionKey=/tks/agent/tks/computeSessionKey
tps.connector.tks1.uri.createKeySetData=/tks/agent/tks/createKeySetData
tps.connector.tks1.uri.encryptData=/tks/agent/tks/encryptData
TPS profiles refer to these connectors by their IDs. For example
op.enroll.userKey.keyGen.signing.ca.conn=ca1
Multiple connector of the same kind (for example, multiple CA connectors) can be defined. This may be useful when one TPS instance serves multiple backend Certificate System servers for different groups of tokens.

Note

Automatic failover for connectors in TPS is currently not supported. A manual failover procedure must be performed to point the TPS to alternate CA, KRA, or TKS, as long as they are clones of the original systems.
