Projects / Pathfinder PKI Daemon

Pathfinder PKI Daemon

Pathfinder provides a mechanism for any program to perform RFC3280-compliant path validation of X509 certificates, even when some of the intermediate certificates are not present on the local machine. It will automatically download any such certificates and their CRLs from the Internet as needed using the AIA and CRL distribution point extensions of the certificates it is processing. By default, the Pathfinder daemon listens on the D-Bus system bus for incoming requests.
