Chapter 19. Deleting the Bootstrap User


Before you delete the bootstrap user, create a real PKI administrative user as described in Chapter 18, Creating a Role User.
To delete the bootstrap user, follow the procedure described in the Deleting a Certificate System User section in the Red Hat Certificate System Administration Guide.

19.1. Disabling Multi-roles Support

By default, users can belong to more than one subsystem group at once, allowing the user to act as more than one role. For example, John Smith could belong to both an agent and an administrator group. However, for highly secure environments, the subsystem roles should be restricted so that a user can only belong to one role. This can be done by disabling the multirole attribute in the instance's configuration.
For all subsystems:
  1. Stop the server:
    # systemctl stop pki-tomcatd@instance_name.service
    OR (if using nuxwdog watchdog)
    # systemctl stop pki-tomcatd-nuxwdog@instance_name.service
  2. Open the CS.cfg file:
    vim /var/lib/pki/instance_name/ca/conf/CS.cfg
  3. Change the multiroles.enable parameter value from true to false.
  4. Add or edit the list of default roles in Certificate System that are affected by the multi-roles setting. If multi-roles is disabled and a user belongs to one of the roles listed in the multiroles.false.groupEnforceList parameter, then the user cannot be added to any group for any of the other roles in the list.
    multiroles.false.groupEnforceList=Administrators,Auditors,Trusted Managers,Certificate Manager Agents,Registration Manager Agents,Key Recovery Authority Agents,Online Certificate Status Manager Agents,Token Key Service Manager Agents,Enterprise CA Administrators,Enterprise KRA Adminstrators,Enterprise OCSP Administrators,Enterprise TKS Administrators,Enterprise TPS Administrators,Security Domain Administrators,Subsystem Group
  5. Restart the server:
    # systemctl start pki-tomcatd@instance_name.service
    OR (if using nuxwdog watchdog)
    # systemctl start pki-tomcatd-nuxwdog@instance_name.service
