EJBCA 7.12 Release Notes

APRIL 2023

The EJBCA team is pleased to announce the release of EJBCA 7.12. This release adds support for CRL Invalidity Date in CRL entries as well as performance improvements and bug fixes.

Deployment options include EJBCA Hardware ApplianceEJBCA Software Appliance, and EJBCA Cloud.


CRL Invalidity Date

EJBCA now supports CRL Invalidity Date, a non-critical extension for CRL entries that allows administrators to specify a date for CRL entries on which it is known or suspected that the private key was compromised.

For more information on the CRL Invalidity Date extension, see CRL Generation or refer to RFC 5280: Internet X. 509 Public Key Infrastructure Certificate and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Profile (section 5.3.2).



The following legacy functionality in EJBCA is now deprecated and will be removed in the next major release:

  • Asynchronous CMP Proxy - Customers previously using the CMP Proxy are advised to migrate to RA Validation of CMP messages in a peer-connected CA/RA setup. For more information, see CMP Proxy.
  • Asynchronous SCEP Proxy - The external RA SCEP server functionality is deprecated and we recommend proxying SCEP requests synchronously through an RA using Peers instead, see Legacy External RA SCEP Server.
  • End Entity printing functionality - For more information, see Printing of User Data.
  • CMS signing for Audit Logs - Customers are recommended to use the built-in Integrity Protected Security Audit Log or external tools for audit log signing. For more information, see Signing Exported Log Files.
  • ECDSA Implicitly CA - Implicitly CA parameters are not the same as explicit parameters and using implicit CA parameters is rare and not useful in practice. For more information, see ECDSA Keys and Signatures.
