Overview

A puppet module to manage the distribution's trusted certificates and install trusted SSL certificates into the system's trusted keystore and java's keystore's.

Module Description

Many organizations use self-signed SSL certificates for internal services that need to be trusted by other hosts. This puppet module will install SSL certificates into a host's system-wide trusted CA files (which are used by distribution-provided java packages) as well as a define for installing certificates into java installations not provided by the distribution.

Setup

What trusted_ca affects

  • Distribution-provided trusted SSL certificates package
  • System-wide additional trusted SSL certificates
  • SSL certificates installed into java trusted certificate keystore

Beginning with trusted_ca

To install trusted_ca

    puppet module install jlambert121-trusted_ca

Dependencies:

  • puppetlabs/stdlib

Usage

Manage only distribution-specific trusted certificates

    class { 'trusted_ca': }

Install a self-signed SSL certificate into the system's global trusted keystore from a source file

    class { 'trusted_ca': }
    trusted_ca::ca { 'mycompany.org':
      source => 'puppet:///ssl/mycompany.org.crt',
    }

Install a self-signed SSL certificate into a java keystore from a source file

    class { 'trusted_ca': }
    trusted_ca::java { 'mycompany.org':
      source => 'puppet:///ssl/mycompany.org/crt',
      java_keystore => '/usr/local/java/lib/security/cacerts',
    }

Install a certificate into the system's global trusted keystore from a PEM-encoded string (eg from hiera)

    class { 'trusted_ca': }
    trusted_ca::ca { 'example.net':
      content => hiera("example-net-x509"),
    }
