Domino is expected to have enhanced PKCS12 Internet Certificate Management .

Domino is expected to have enhanced PKCS12 Internet Certificate Management .

Currently as per documented process there is GUI method of importing internet certificates deployed by internal CA outside of Domino to the person documents in the NAB(Domino Directory).

Thus to import the internet certficates to a large number of NAB users uusing GUI is tidiuos as this needs action on each person document individually.(Goal is to put only public keys (*.cer) into the internet certificate field).

Though there are undocumented Lotusscript method of using @Command([PKCS12ImportCertsToNAB] without GUI, but it is expected from Domino to have a better enhanced PKCS12 Internet Certifcate Managament. Where using GUI method this certifcate import can be done to multiple set of users in a go as per requirement.

    If you would like to distribute a 3rd party X509 email certificate to your users, there are two methods:

    a) the end user creating a Certificate Signing Request - this can only be done with a private key, so it must be done by the user

    b) admins can create a new keypair, which will then be used to create a CSR. However, the keypair needs to be merged back into the user's ID file - and again this is an action that only the user can do.

    Without the password you can not change the contents of the user ID file, so distributing a new x509 cert can not be done by just uploading it to the DominoDirectory.

    However, the Domino CA process can very well be used to issue X509 certs to existing users. Distributing 3rd party key material without involving the user requires more than just an @function.
