Understanding Certificate Templates - AWS Certificate Manager Private Certificate Authority

Understanding Certificate Templates

ACM Private CA uses configuration templates to issue both CA certificates and end-entity certificates. When you issue a CA certificate from the PCA console, the appropriate root or subordinate CA certificate template is applied automatically.

If you use the CLI or API to issue a certificate, you can supply a template ARN as a parameter to the IssueCertificate action. If you provide no ARN, then the EndEntityCertificate/V1 template is applied by default. For more information, see the IssueCertificate API and issue-certificate command documentation.

Note

Cross-account certificate issuers are constrained by a resource-based policy and have access only to the EndEntityCertificate/V1 template.

Template Varieties

ACM Private CA supports four varieties of template.

  • Base templates

    Pre-defined templates in which no passthrough parameters are allowed.

  • CSRPassthrough templates

    Templates that extend their corresponding base template versions by allowing CSR passthrough. Extensions in the CSR that is used to issue the certificate are copied over to the issued certificate. In cases where the CSR contains extension values that conflict with the template definition, the template definition will always have the higher priority. For more details about priority, see Template Order of Operations.

  • APIPassthrough templates

    Templates that extend their corresponding base template versions by allowing API passthrough. Dynamic values that are known to the administrator or other intermediate systems may not be known by the entity requesting the certificate, may be impossible to define in a template, and may not be available in the CSR. The CA administrator, however, can retrieve additional information from another data source, such as an Active Directory, to complete the request. For example, if a machine doesn't know what organization unit it belongs to, the administrator can look up the information in Active Directory and add it to the certificate request by including the information in a JSON structure.

    Values in the ApiPassthrough parameter of the IssueCertificate action are copied over to the issued certificate. In cases where the ApiPassthrough parameter contains information that conflicts with the template definition, the template definition will always have the higher priority. For more details about priority, see Template Order of Operations.

  • APICSRPassthrough templates

    Templates that extend their corresponding base template versions by allowing both API and CSR passthrough. Extensions in the CSR used to issue the certificate are copied over to the issued certificate, and values in the ApiPassthrough parameter of the IssueCertificate action are also copied over . In cases where the template definition, API passthrough values, and CSR passthrough extensions exhibit a conflict, the template definition has highest priority, followed by the API passthrough values, followed by the CSR passthrough extensions. For more details about priority, see Template Order of Operations.

The tables below list all of the template types supported by ACM Private CA with links to their definitions.

Template Order of Operations

Information contained in an issued certificate can come from four sources: the template definition, API passthrough, CSR passthrough, and the CA configuration.

API passthrough values are only respected when you use an API passthrough or APICSR passthrough template. CSR passthrough is only respected when you use a CSRPassthrough or APICSR passthrough template. When these sources of information are in conflict, a general rule usually applies: For each extension value, the template definition has highest priority, followed by API passthrough values, followed by CSR passthrough extensions.

Examples

  1. The template definition for EndEntityClientAuthCertificate_APIPassthrough defines the ExtendedKeyUsage extension with a value of "TLS web server authentication, TLS web client authentication". If ExtendedKeyUsage is defined in the CSR or in the IssueCertificate ApiPassthrough parameter, the ApiPassthrough value for ExtendedKeyUsage will be ignored because the template definition takes priority, and the CSR value for ExtendedKeyUsage value will be ignored because the template is not a CSR passthrough variety.

    Note

    The template definition nonetheless copies over other values from the CSR, such as Subject and Subject Alternative Name. These values are still taken from the CSR even though the template is not a CSR passthrough variety, because the template definition always takes highest priority.

  2. The template definition for EndEntityClientAuthCertificate_APICSRPassthrough defines the Subject Alternative Name (SAN) extension as being copied from the API or CSR. If the SAN extension is defined in the CSR and provided in the IssueCertificate ApiPassthrough parameter, the API passthrough value will take priority because API passthrough values take priority over CSR passthrough values.

Template Definitions

The following sections provide configuration details about supported ACM Private CA certificate templates.

BlankEndEntityCertificate_APIPassthrough/V1 Definition

With blank end-entity certificate templates, you can issue end-entity certificates with only X.509 Basic constraints present. This is the simplest end-entity certificate that ACM Private CA can issue, but it can be customized using the API structure. The Basic constraints extension defines whether or not the certificate is a CA certificate. A blank end-entity certificate template enforces a value of FALSE for Basic constraints to ensure that an end-entity certificate is issued and not a CA certificate.

Blank passthrough templates are useful for issuing smart card certificates that require specific values for Key usage (KU) and Extended key usage (EKU). For example, Extended key usage may require Client Authentication and Smart Card Logon, and Key usage may require Digital Signature, Non Repudiation, and Key Encipherment. Unlike other passthrough templates, blank end-entity certificate templates allow the configuration of KU and EKU extensions, where KU can be any of the nine supported values (digitalSignature, nonRepudiation, keyEnciphermet, dataEncipherment, keyAgreement, keyCertSign, cRLSign, encipherOnly, and decipherOnly) and EKU can be any of the supported values (serverAuth, clientAuth, codesigning, emailProtection, timestamping, and OCSPSigning) plus custom extensions.

RootCACertificate/V1 Definition

This template is used to issue self-signed root CA certificates. CA certificates include a critical Basic constraints extension with the CA field set to TRUE to designate that the certificate can be used to issue CA certificates. This template does not specify a path length because the path length constrains the maximum length of the CA chain (CA certification depth). A constrained chain length could inhibit future expansion of the hierarchy. Extended key usage is excluded to prevent use of the CA certificate as a TLS client or server certificate. No CRL information is specified because a self-signed certificate cannot be revoked.
