How to replace your own certificate in WAYF

Service providers don't need to supply a signing certificate for WAYF at all, cf. WAYF's certificate policy.

However, if you wish or need to supply a new signing certificate for your WAYF connection, the following steps must be followed:

This is how to replace your signing certificate in WAYF

  1. The user registered for you in JANUS logs into the latter.
  2. He then finds your connection, by searching for his institution/service.
  3. He then changes the connection's state from Production into Test. (Notice that what is put into Test is a copy of the existing connection, which thus is not cut off but remains operational until another revision is put into production.)
  4. Select the Metadata tab.
  5. Insert your new certificate key into 'certData2', and press Save, in the lower right corner. (If the certData2 field is not visible, click the green cross, at the foot, to choose that data field from the list, making it visible.)
  6. Change the state into QA Pending, and insert "Certificate rollover START" in the Note field at the foot.
  7. The WAYF Secretariat checks the changes you made, then advances your revised connection all the way up to Production.
  8. Once the connection has been put into Production in JANUS, you can replace the certificate in your own technical setup.
  9. You must then test that your connection is functioning as intended.
  10. If it does, enter JANUS once more.
  11. Again change the connection's state from Production into Test. Remember to click Save.
  12. Select the Metadata tab.
  13. Erase the content of the 'certData' field.
  14. Copy the content of 'certData2' into 'certData'.
  15. Press Save, in the lower right corner.
  16. Remove the 'certData2' field. Press Save.
  17. Once more change state into QA Pending, and make a note in the field at the foot, saying "Certificate rollover COMPLETE".
  18. The WAYF Secretariat checks the changes you made, then advances your revised connection all the way up to Production.
  19. Certificate rollover has now been completed.
