Rapid Deployment of EJBCA and SignServer by Automating with Ansible Playbooks

Developer Community

Automated deployment and configuration with Ansible playbooks can offer tremendous efficiency and security gains by having a repeatable process. With our provided playbooks, the PKI platform EJBCA and the digital signing software SignServer can be deployed in minutes. Now, both Community and Enterprise versions of EJBCA and SignServer are supported.

PrimeKey by Keyfactor follows the DevOps trends closely. We understand the importance of automated deployment of containers and virtual machines. Therefore, we offer EJBCA, SignServer and integrations as Ansible playbooks.

Red Hat’s open source automation tool Ansible enables efficient and secure provisioning, configuration management and deployment of software and containers. Ansible leverages the YAML markup language to write playbooks that are used to automate tasks by running the commands.

With the provided Ansible playbooks for EJBCA and SignServer, you can easily get the Community or Enterprise version up and running, by using pre-tested templated configurations. EJBCA includes a complete PKI hierarchy setup and configuration with one or several CAs, while SignServer provides all the basic tools you need for document signing, code signing and timestamping.

A complete technology stack is also included, with Java 11, Apache HTTPD, Maria DB, Wildfly, and PKCS11 or soft token.
