# Governikus eIDAS Middleware
# The ReQESIDTA eID-Server
This repository contains the source code of the ReQESIDTA eID-Server based on the German eIDAS middleware.
This repository contains the source code of the German eIDAS middleware.
# Prerequisites
In order to build and run the eID-Server some additional tools are needed.
## Releases
With every release, the source code of our internal repository will be exported into this repository.
The signed release artifacts will be released on github as well.
Required dependencies are:
## Build
### Building the java sources
We are using maven to build and test the software.
* Java JDK 8
To build the software, execute the following command:
maven clean install
You can find the compiled JARs in the `target/` directory of each module.
* Maven in the latest version
### Building the documentation
The source for the documentation can be found in the `doc` folder.
* docker in the latest version
To build a pdf file, _sphinx_ is needed. Please see the [sphinx documentation](
on how to install sphinx on your system.
* docker-compose in the latest version
To create the pdf file, issue the following commands:
* PersoSim (for local startup using a self-signed certificate, not needed for creating a deployment package!)
# Build Sources
To build the software, execute the following command:
mvn clean install
cd doc && make clean latexpdf
The created pdf document can be found at `_build/latex/eIDASMiddleware.pdf`.
## Documentation
The user documentation for each release is available in the release artifacts.
# Run the server locally
The server consits of several docker services which must be run together.
Please see ./docker/ for further instructions.
## Contributing
Please see []( for more information on how to submit pull requests.
# Create a deployment package to run on a remote machine
Please execute the following command while sitting in the project`s root directory:

# Using Docker Compose
The goal of the Docker Compose file is to provide an environment with both an
instance of the POSeIDAS eid-server and EJBCA.
## Usage
In order to build the POSeIDAS image, you have to package the POSeIDAS server
first (therefore the parent project has to be built once). The output directory
of the artifact is specified in the pom file. After compiling, start Docker
# Structure of the project
The goal of the Docker Compose file is to provide an environment with instances
of all needed services for the eid-server:
* ejbca: The CA of the project
* facade: The facade is used as gateway for accessing the services of the project
* poseidas: The internal used eID-Server
* sam: The SAM of the project
* ssa: The SSA of the project
* web-ui: A web-ui used to trigger the process by recieving an document upload
# Local Startup of the project
Please ensure to have the client-signer (eID-Client) and PersoSim running.
Use a Profile found under `../perso_sim_profiles` for PersoSim.
After having built the project, you can now start Docker Compose
While sitting in the current directory run:
docker-compose up -d
The project is setup to use the domain ``.
Let this domain point to localhost and open it in the browser.
You will then reach the web-ui.
If you ever change files that are located within the Docker containers, you have
## Making changes
If you ever change files that are located within the Docker containers or a dockerfile, you have
to rebuild the image(s). So e.g. after re-compilation of the POSeIDAS server:
docker-compose up -d --no-deps --build poseidas
Please remember to copy your changes to `../for_deployment-package` if needed.
Display all or individual logfiles:
docker-compose logs --follow
docker-compose logs --follow poseidas
## Configuration

The configuration files are in the docker subdirectory and can be used to modify
the behaviour of the POSeIDAS server.
### POSeIDAS Database

For the database, a named volume is used. The location of the actual data can be
retrieved via '`docker volume inspect docker_eidas-database | grep Mountpoint`'.
