SignServer is a framework designed to perform different kind of digital signatures for different applications.
There are three kind of processable services.
In addition to processable services there also exists another concept called Timed Service which are plug-ins run at defined intervals performing maintenance or reporting routines.
Out-of-the-box are there several signers ready to be used. They can easily be configured after installation of SignServer.
The main way of communicating with the SignServer is through the web server interface or using the client web services (WS) interface.
Administration is done through a command-line interface where properties and access controls can be configured or using the Admin GUI remotely over the Admin web services (WS) interface.
One instance of SignServer can have multiple signers for different purposes.
