Container for the parameters to the CreateCertificateAuthority operation. Creates a private subordinate certificate authority (CA). You must specify the CA configuration, the revocation configuration, the CA type, and an optional idempotency token. The CA configuration specifies the name of the algorithm and key size to be used to create the CA private key, the type of signing algorithm that the CA uses to sign, and X.500 subject information. The CRL (certificate revocation list) configuration specifies the CRL expiration period in days (the validity period of the CRL), the Amazon S3 bucket that will contain the CRL, and a CNAME alias for the S3 bucket that is included in certificates issued by the CA. If successful, this operation returns the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CA.

public class CreateCertificateAuthorityRequest : AmazonACMPCARequest

The CreateCertificateAuthorityRequest type exposes the following members



Public Property CertificateAuthorityConfiguration Amazon.ACMPCA.Model.CertificateAuthorityConfiguration

Gets and sets the property CertificateAuthorityConfiguration.

Name and bit size of the private key algorithm, the name of the signing algorithm, and X.500 certificate subject information.

Public Property CertificateAuthorityType Amazon.ACMPCA.CertificateAuthorityType

Gets and sets the property CertificateAuthorityType.

The type of the certificate authority. Currently, this must be SUBORDINATE.

Public Property IdempotencyToken System.String

Gets and sets the property IdempotencyToken.

Alphanumeric string that can be used to distinguish between calls to CreateCertificateAuthority. Idempotency tokens time out after five minutes. Therefore, if you call CreateCertificateAuthority multiple times with the same idempotency token within a five minute period, ACM PCA recognizes that you are requesting only one certificate. As a result, ACM PCA issues only one. If you change the idempotency token for each call, however, ACM PCA recognizes that you are requesting multiple certificates.

Public Property RevocationConfiguration Amazon.ACMPCA.Model.RevocationConfiguration

Gets and sets the property RevocationConfiguration.

Contains a Boolean value that you can use to enable a certification revocation list (CRL) for the CA, the name of the S3 bucket to which ACM PCA will write the CRL, and an optional CNAME alias that you can use to hide the name of your bucket in the CRL Distribution Points extension of your CA certificate. For more information, see the CrlConfiguration structure.
