10 February 2017 - CMS 2.1 is now live in CIS, unlocking the following functions against Series 8 (Oberthur) Smartcards

CMS 2.1 is now live in CIS, unlocking the following functions against Series 8 (Oberthur) Smartcards:

  1. RA-performed certificate renew of subject Smartcards (during the renewal window).
  2. RA-performed repair of subject Smartcards.

In order to enable this functionality, you will need the latest Oberthur middleware ‘SR5’.

Supporting information

When you'll require Oberthur middleware

You only need Oberthur middleware in order to perform certificate-based CMS operations against Series 8 (Oberthur) Smartcards, including:

  • issuance (via Smartcard printer or Smartcard reader)
  • smartcard print only
  • cancellation
  • RA renewal
  • repair

You do not need Oberthur middleware in order to simply authenticate with Series 8 (Oberthur) Smartcards.

Additionally, it is not required if you are only performing passcode operations against Series 8 Smartcards, including:

  • Smartcard passcode change (self or RA-assisted)
  • Smartcard unlock

Known issues with the installation of Oberthur middleware

As always please check with your system suppliers prior to installing any software, to confirm it is compatible with their products and services.

We are aware that there are integration issues with SystmOne and EMIS Web. Their providers are currently working to resolve these issues.

Users cannot yet ‘self-renew’ certificates on Series 8 Smartcards

This will be addressed in a future CMS release.

More information and a troubleshooting section is available in the Installation Guide, available with the software here.
