We are not directly involved in Barbican. To the best of my knowledge
its primary focus is to provide certificate issuance to the cervices and
applications running in the cloud. We have been focusing more on the
certificates for the cloud infra itself.
The short term plan is to leverage certmonger on the client side
(leverading Linux platform under OpenStack) to fetch certs from
Certmaster/FreeIPA/Dogtag to bootstrap the undercloud and overcloud and
then provide FreeIPA/Dogtag as a back end for Barbican.
But for it to be a viable solution upstream Dogtag should be usable in
the upstream dev environment so we are workign on making FreeIPA/Dogtag
available in Debian for dev purposes. Once it is done we would be able
to get in touch with Barbican team again. Absence of Debian availability
was a showstopper for a conversation about Barbican.
