Fabric CA Integration with Fabric Peers

As you can see:

  • You can run a single Fabric CA server to serve one organization.
  • You can run a cluster of Fabric CA servers to provide better availability through a HA (High Availability) proxy. See the top right corner of the diagram for CA server cluster.
  • You can run a multi-tier Fabric CA server network to provide better control of membership services to a large Fabric network. See the top left corner of the diagram for the root CA and intermediate CA relation.
  • You can interact with a Fabric CA server with the Fabric CA client tool to manage the server.
  • You can interact with a Fabric CA server with the Fabric CA client tool to manage the server.
  • You can interact with a Fabric CA server with Fabric SDKs to register and sync up your identity, which is needed to access Fabric Peers.
  • You can also call Fabric CA server REST API directly, which is not illustrated in the diagram.
