QR-CERT is a specialized software package dedicated for the development of a Public Key Infrastructure system as well as the cards personalization and management system.
The software package is structured in such a way that the system built using the QR-CERT software could consist of a central part (QR-CERT Serwer), in which all data generated and stored in the system will be stored, processed and protected (certificates, CRLs, the identity of subscribers, secrets, rights, etc.), and the client part (QR-CERT Operator) providing the graphical user interface and some selected functionalities (such as generating requests to issue a certificate) for system users such as: Administrator, Operator or Auditor. The system built using QR-CERT software allows multiple users to work simultaneously from multiple remote stations operating within the multiple certification authorities (CA) and a number of policies for issuing certificates and CRLs.
The software contains a number of functional modules, enabling a flexible selection of functionalities for implementation. The description of individual system modules can be found in chapter Opis budowy systemu.
The software is dedicated for medium and large organizations and corporate environments, using a PKI infrastructure and microprocessor cards. The QR-CERT is a solution both for the companies which plan to build their own PKI infrastructure and entities planning to provide services in this respect.
This software enables the implementation of advanced security mechanisms in the IT environment of an organization, such as: secure e-mail (S/MIME), digital signature (PKCS#7), network transmission protection (IPsec, SSL/TLS) and strong authentication for service portals (HTTPS) or strong authentication of users for the Windows ActiveDirectory domain. A detailed description of the QR-CERT software capabilities can be found in chapter Funkcjonalności.
QR-CERT has a simple and intuitive user interface as well as numerous functionalities which enable the operators and administrators to perform their daily operations by supporting the automation of the most time-consuming tasks. In addition to the typical functionalities for this type of solutions, QR-CERT is provided with modules supporting the operation of specialized devices for the automation of the cards personalization process and the required functionality to manage the life cycle of tokens (microprocessor cards).
QR-CERT software can work with many different card printers to personalize cryptographic cards. Such printers can be connected directly via USB port or Ethernet.
QR-CERT software enables cooperation with many tokens in form of smart cards and USB devices (NXP JCOP3, Oberthur ID-One Cosmo, Gemalto ID Prime, NXP USB Token, Cryptotech Carbon).
The application enables scaling the solution to tens of millions of certificates and cards issued annually. The software is provided with a set of software APIs enabling system integration with other applications carrying out associated or dependant processes.
The QR-CERT software complies with the law, including the Act on the Protection of Personal Data and Regulation of the European Parliament and Council (EU) 2016/679 of 27/04/2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement such data and the repeal of Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR) entering into force on 25/05/2018.
