A suite of OpenXPKI ports for FreeBSD

A collection of FreeBSD ports for the OpenXPKI suite - Perl based trustcenter software for PKI: server and client parts along with deployment tools:

Dependencies of OpenXPKI ports ("A → B" means that port B depends on port A):

p5-openxpki-client  ←  p5-openxpki (server) →  p5-openxpki-i18n
           \  
             \       |  p5-openxpki-client-html-mason,
               \ →  |  p5-openxpki-client-scep, p5-openxpki-deployment.

Notes:

Ports registered with the FreeBSD ports collection

OpenXPKI is included into the distribution of the basic FreeBSD system as a suite of regular ports under the FreeBSD names

security/p5-openxpki*

These ports embrace all tools of openxpki (server-side, client-side, deployment, i18n).

You have to undergo subsequent deployment stage by hand. This will specify the role, which your computer plays in the PKI infrastructure.

It is very much NOT recommended to copy only ports security/p5-openxpki* onto your computer, if you wish to install them. These ports depend on dozens of other ports. Thus it is essential to have the entire port collection (present on your computer) in a self-consistent state and in accord with your base system.

Recommended procedure to make use of the ports is:

Just in case: FreeBSD employs one and the same port collection in ALL (stable, current, legacy) versions of FreeBSD.

Ports for Last Midnight Snapshot of the OpenXPKI development code

Are built nightly by an intellectual script. Awailable from the Last Midnight Snapshot page.

Ports for current svn snapshot of the OpenXPKI development code

If you are impatient and want to play with more recent snapshots of openxpki, you may try

You should end up with updated collection of ports, which are located inside your svn snapshot:
.../trunk/package/freebsd/usr/ports/security/p5-openxpki*.

Please note, that thus modified ports may still need manual trimming. Especially if new 3-rd party's dependencies were added to the code.

If you find issues with these FreeBSD ports, please report to the openxpki-users mailing list.
