The CertificateGroups Object organizes the Certificate Groups supported by the Server. It is described in 7.5.17. Servers shall support the DefaultApplicationGroup and may support the DefaultHttpsGroup or the DefaultUserTokenGroup. Servers may support additional Certificate Groups depending on their requirements. For example, a Server with two network interfaces should have a different Trust List for each interface. The second Trust List would be represented as a new CertificateGroupType Object organized by CertificateGroups Folder.

The ServerCapabilities Property specifies the capabilities from Annex D which the Server supports. The value is the same as the value reported to the LocalDiscoveryServer when the Server calls the RegisterServer2 Service.

The SupportedPrivateKeyFormats specifies the PrivateKey formats supported by the Server. Possible values include “PEM” (see RFC 5958) or “PFX” (see PKCS #12). The array is empty if the Server does not allow external Clients to update the PrivateKey.

The MaxTrustListSize is the maximum size of the Trust List in bytes. 0 means no limit. The default is 65 535 bytes.

If MulticastDnsEnabled is TRUE then the Server announces itself using multicast DNS. It can be changed by writing to the Variable.

The GetRejectedList Method returns the list of Certificates which have been rejected by the Server. It can be used to track activity or allow administrators to move a rejected Certificate into the Trust List.

The UpdateCertificate Method is used to update a Certificate.

The ApplyChanges Method is used to apply any security related changes if the Server sets the applyChangesRequired flag when another Method is called. Servers should minimize the impact of applying the new configuration, however, it could require that all existing Sessions be closed and re-opened by the Clients.

The CreateSigningRequest Method asks the Server to create a PKCS #10 encoded Certificate Request that is signed with the Server’s private key.
