Hi Mike,

Did you have any joy with this?
I've been using my IPA PKI for our 802.1x infrastructure - which is working nicely for the enrolled Linux hosts.
I've been considering adding some Chrome OS into the mix, but before shelling out for some devices I've been trying to navigate both the manual and extension based install methods.

It looks like some additional Network management options including some certificate bits have been added into the Google admin console which I thought might yield a method for doing per-device certificates, and I've also been trying to make sense of if the extension based bits in https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6080885?hl=en could be made to play nicely with Dogtag.
https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6321820?hl=en Looks like a no-go due to wanting an AD infrastructure!

Anyway, would be interested to hear how you're getting along,

I see. Well, technically a host/service/whatever doesn't need to be
enrolled to get a cert it just needs a presence within IPA. Basically a
bucket into which to drop the cert for tracking.

So you can do this:

$ ipa host-add router.example.com
$ openssl ...
$ ipa cert-request host/router.example.com ...

I realize even this can seem a bit overbearing when you just want a cert
but given that IPA tries to be the central authority on things it made
sense to make it know about all issued certs as well.

That and my fear that if the requirement was relaxed an intruder,
disgruntled admin, whatever who got IPA admin rights could really do
some nasty things (e.g. add a DNS record for yourbank.com, get a valid,
trusted cert for it, etc).
