we're challenged with a PKI scenario with multiple CAs (Certification
Authorities) publishing into multiple directories. Each CA has its own
distinct namespace (=DIT) and the directories shall be Muli-Master
replicated. So far, I think this can be handled via syncrepl.
Now I'm looking for a possibility to replicate (push) certain
directory contents (e.g. revocation list updates from the CAs) to
mobile systems which are connected via low bandwidth media (some kBPS
like slow Modems, which also is already in use for other applications)
and the connections are not always available (e.g. client out of radio
reachability). As far as I understood several documents on syncrepl,
it is not really useful on low bandwidth connections. This push
service should therefore compress data or at least only transfer the
Is there a standardized protocol or other mechanism to accomplish that?
If not, is there a way to trigger something when updates are coming in
via replication? We would then think of using/building a special
transfer mechanism that does the job.
Thanks in advance for any hint!
