Yes, you can run a Hyperledger Fabric Network without Fabric CA Server. In that case, you have to manage PKI certificate services manually

For example, you need to do the following manually to add a new user to access your ledger peer:

  • Generate a pair of private key and public key for the user.
  • Generate a CSR (Certificate Sign Request) from the key pair.
  • Sign the CSR with the private of the root CA of your organization to generate a certificate for the user.
  • Put the private key and the certificate of the user in a wallet file format required by the user's Fabric SDK.

With the wallet ready, the user can now run the application written with the Fabric SDK to access the ledger peer.
