If you're new to Dogtag Certificate System, read an overview of the Certificate system architecture to become familiar with the technology and terminology behind DCS. Due to the vast amount of acronyms and abbreviations associated with this project, the Tool-Tip Glossary Extension will soon be provided for convenience (please see Bugzilla Bug #438278).
DCS has both pre-built binaries and source code available. If you are interested in development, see the building guide underneath the Developers section. Otherwise, to simply run or deploy a Certificate System using pre-built components, see the installation guide.
Client software for the Dogtag Certificate System includes the following:
- Enterprise Security Client for token management
- Firefox Browser
For more information on the client software and other related technologies look here.
As open source software, there are many ways to get help. This includes online documentation, as well as support provided by the project developers and community in the mailing lists and online chat sites in IRC.
- Subscribe to one or more of the mailing lists.
- Chat with other users in real time by joining one or more of the IRC channels.

The current Dogtag Certificate System wishlist is also available.
