Hyperleder Fabric CA


(Alicia Antony Oviiya) #1


Can I use Fabric CA in the production environment or is there any other replacement for Fabric CA to generate certs in the production ?

Can I replace Fabric CA with Godaddy, Digicert, Let’s Encrypt or something like that ?

The problem is that the Hyperledger Fabric CA follows a format in which the cert could be decrypted and the attributes of the cert could be accessed via SDK .

I was able to generate ECDSA X509 digital certificate with Openssl but I was not able to get the attributes via Fabric SDK. Using the cert generate via openssl the network was working fine but i was not able to access the attributes via Fabric SDK .

Would be eager to hear someone answering .

As far as I discussed with Hyperledger Engineers, Currently fabric doesn’t supports the using 3rd party SSL Certificates.

Looks like some are saying it’s possible and some are saying it’s not. Let me loopin some more people to have a look at this.

And Definitely it’s pretty good problem to address :slight_smile: Thanks for bringing this up.
