At least one Notes certificate from the certifier ID - which is a Digital signature added to auser ID or Server ID. This generates from the private key of the certifier ID.
A Private key- Notes uses private key to sign messages sent by the owner of the provate keyand to decrypt messages sent to its owner.
Internet certificates (optional) - An Internet certificate is used to secure SSL connections andencrypt and sign S/MIME mail messages.
One or more secret encryption keys (optional) - Encryption keys are created and distributed byusers to allow other users to encrypt and decrypt fields in a document.
3. Difference between North American and international certifiers
All Notes IDs contain two public/private key pairs. Prior to 5.0.4, key lengths were restricted for thepurposes of encrypting data, but not for authentication or signing. Anything over 512-bit RSA key and56-bit symmetric key was considered strong encryption and was not allowed for export by the U.S.Government. Customers were required to order and choose among kits of different cryptographicstrengths.With the relaxation of US government regulations on the export of cryptography, the Domino serverand the Domino Administrator, Domino Designer, and Lotus Notes client products have consolidated allprevious encryption strengths -- North American, International, and France -- into one strongencryption level resulting in a single "Global" release of the products. The Global release adopts theencryption characteristics previously known as North American. Strong encryption in Global productscan be used worldwide, except in countries whose import laws prohibit it, or except in those countriesto which the export of goods and services is prohibited by the U.S. government. Customers are nolonger required to order Notes software according to cryptographic strength.
4. Global Domain Doc, Foreign domain doc, Foreign SMTP Domino Doc
Domains are defined by creating Domain documents. Multiple documents types are available based onthe requirements needed to route mail. The Following types of documents are available.
Adjacent domain document
- this document is used to route mail between servers that are notin the same Notes named network.
Nonadjacent domain document
- This document servers three functions:
Supplies next-hop routing information to route mail
Prohibits mail from routing to the domain
Provides Calendar server synchronization between two domains
Foreign Domain Document
-This document is used for connections between external applications.A typical application used is a fax or pager gateway.
Foreign SMTP Domain Document
-This document is used to route Internet mail when the serverdoes not have explicit DNS access.
