does anybody know if the Java SDK supports the Global Discovery and Certificate Management Server profile
as specified in the OPC Unified Architecture Specification Part 12?
Especially the central certificate Management (server certificate request etc.)?

Thanks, Peter

Depends on your definition of ‘support’, but not really, not yet (some prototyping internally, but nothing release-grade). Though, we are also kinda not aware of any GDS being in use in the field since there doesn’t yet seem to be any real implementation/product out there. Are you aware of one or was this more like a question in general?

In a technical sense, since the GDS stuff is just normal nodes + Read/Write/Call, you could in theory implement the required stuff manually with a lot of work. The certificates are used via a CertificateStore and you could have a custom implementation if the PkiDirectoryCertificateStore is not enough.

..this was a question of one of our customers from Japan 🙂
But I have no more specific information, if they already use a GDS and if yes which one.
So, thank you for your answer, I don’t expect more details from Japan, but if I get some, I will let you know.

Regards, Peter
