No, Because it will break user certs. To make it work would require that
users all get entirely new server cert files. We need to redo our entire
CA system. We also need to consider the ramifications for Secondary
arches, deploying a new CA would require each and every Secondary arch to
purchase a cert from the same CA. or somebody to purchase a cert that
covered *.koji.fedoraproject.org from the same CA.
we are looking at deploying the hub on a separate box from the frontend
which would allow us to do what you are wanting but would not look after
How about making the hub (I assume this is only used by automated processes
and not manually) listen on a different port than 443? Then the web interface
could use the new well know certificate. The automated processes the internal
ones, where imho using a own ca does not hurt. Also using a different port
should be only a matter of configuring it once.
The secondary arch instances could then use a cacert certificate, which are
free and are trusted by some browsers already for the web interface.
We currently use 2 different CA's in our setup. One that is used
user certs and one that is used for the builders and frontend. I would
like to move to a new Single CA setup. In this world when you import your
fedora user cert for browser authentication you would automatically
recognise the CA. though this would only be valid for Fedora contributors.
Is this only about Koji or Fedoraprojet in general? Imho it is better to use a
well known CA for the frontend (website) and an own one for internal stuff
instead of using an own one for everything.
