Fabric CA (Certificate Authority) is a component of Hyperledger Fabric platform that manages certificates for Hyperledger Fabric Network as a MSP (Membership Service Provider).

Similar to a standard PKI CA server, Fabric CA provides features such as:

  • Registration of identities with roles like peer or connects to an existing identity manager (like LDAP) as the user registry to fetch identities of the mentioned roles.
  • Issuance of Enrollment Certificates for signing and identifying.
  • Issuance of Transaction Certificates.
  • Providing both anonymity and unlinkability when transacting on a Hyperledger Fabric blockchain.
  • Certificate renewal and revocation.
