To make it work would require that users all get entirely new server cert files. We need to redo our entire CA system. We also need to consider the ramifications for Secondary arches, deploying a new CA would require each and every Secondary arch to purchase a cert from the same CA. or somebody to purchase a cert that covered *.koji.fedoraproject.org from the same CA. we are looking at deploying the hub on a separate box from the frontend which would allow us to do what you are wanting but would not look after secondary arches. We currently use 2 different CA's in our setup. One that is used only for user certs and one that is used for the builders and frontend. I would like to move to a new Single CA setup. In this world when you import your fedora user cert for browser authentication you would automatically recognise the CA. though this would only be valid for Fedora contributors. right now we have up ia64.koji.fedoraproject.org and sparc.koji.fedoraproject.org in addition to koji.fedoraproject.org you can log into any of them using your fedora cert. We need to ensure that this is always the case. in addition we will soon have s390.koji.fedoraproject.org and eventually arm.fedoraproject.org and alpha.fedoraproject.org as well as any others that come along say mips/mips64, hppa, whatever arch someone wants to support. all of which we need to be able to provide authentication for users across all servers with one usercert. Please bring up ideas on redoing our CA infrastructure We need to start a project to do it. Im hope that Red Hat open sources Red Hat Certificate System soon as id like to evaluate it to see if it will work for us. the secondary arch hubs know about the user CA and have a cert from the builder CA and know about it as well. in addition they use their own 3rd CA for identifying the builders, kojira, garbage collection, etc Dennis
