CCMS Authorization Functional Area


'CCMS Authorization' components provide authorization credentials (e.g., pseudonym certificates) to end entities. The end entity applies for and obtains authorization credentials, enabling the end entity to enter the "Operational" state. This function requires an interactive dialog, including at minimum a Certificate Request from the end entity desiring certificates. This request will be checked for validity, with the embedded enrollment certificate checked against an internal blacklist. If all checks are passed, this function will distribute a bundle of linked pseudonym certificates suitable for use by the requesting end entity, with the characteristics and usage rules of those certificates dependent on the operational policies of the CCMS. It also provides the secure provisioning of a given object's Decryption Key in response to an authorized request from that object. The retrieved Decryption Key will be used by the receiving object to decrypt the "next valid" batch within the set of previously retrieved Security Credential batches.
