cassandra-ca-manager

Easily create Java keystores with a self-signed CA trust chain, for Apache Cassandra (and other Java applications).

Usage

Step 1.

Create a YAML-formatted manifest describing the certificate authority and machine certificates.

    # The top-level working directory
    base_directory: /path/to/base/directory

    # The Certificate Authority
    authority:
      key:
        size: 2048
      cert:
        subject:
          organization: WMF
          country: US
          unit: Services
        valid: 365
      password: qwerty

    # Java keystores
    keystores:
      - name: restbase1001-a
        key:
          size: 2048
        cert:
          subject:
            organization: WMF
            country: US
            unit: Services
          valid: 365
        password: qwerty

      - name: restbase1001-b
        key:
          size: 2048
        cert:
          subject:
            organization: WMF
            country: US
            unit: Services
          valid: 365
        password: qwerty
    
      - name: restbase1002-a
        key:
          size: 2048
        cert:
          subject:
            organization: WMF
            country: US
            unit: Services
          valid: 365
        password: qwerty

Step 2.

Run the script with the manifest as its only argument:

$ cassandra-ca-manager manifest.yaml
$ tree /path/to/base/directory
/path/to/base/directory
├── restbase1001-a
│   ├── restbase1001-a.crt
│   └── restbase1001-a.csr
│   └── restbase1001-a.kst
├── restbase1001-b
│   ├── restbase1001-b.crt
│   └── restbase1001-b.csr
│   └── restbase1001-b.kst
├── restbase1002-a
│   ├── restbase1002-a.crt
│   └── restbase1002-a.csr
│   └── restbase1002-a.kst
├── rootCa.crt
├── rootCa.key
├── rootCa.srl
└── truststore

3 directories, 13 files

Note: cassandra-ca-manager is idempotent, it will not overwrite any existing material in the base directory. To create additional keystores later, simply add their definitions to the manifest, and re-run the script.

Step 3.

Copy the resulting truststore and *.kst files to their respective machines, and configure server and/or client encryption accordingly.
