OSCCA-approved cryptography

For fully supporting the OSCCA-approved cryptography algorithm, FISCO integrates the national encryption, decryption, signature, verification, hash algorithm and SSL communication protocol in the FISCO BCOS platform based on the OSCCA-approved cryptography standard. The design documents can be found in the FISCO BCOS Design Manual. OSCCA-approved cryptography Version.

Initial deployment of FISCO BCOS OSCCA-approved cryptography version

This section uses the build_chain script to build a 4-nodes FISCO BCOS chain locally, and uses Ubuntu 16.04 system as an example to operate. This section uses pre-compiled static fisco-bcos binaries for testing on CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 16.04.

# rely on the installation of Ubuntu16
$ sudo apt install -y openssl curl
# prepare environment
$ cd ~ && mkdir -p fisco && cd fisco
# download build_chain.sh script
$ curl -#LO https://github.com/FISCO-BCOS/FISCO-BCOS/releases/download/v2.7.2/build_chain.sh && chmod u+x build_chain.sh
  • build a 4-nodes FISCO BCOS chain
# Generate a 4-nodes FISCO chain. All nodes belong to group1. The following instructions are executed in the fisco directory.
# -p specifies the starting ports which are p2p_port, channel_port, jsonrpc_port
# According to the following instructions, it needs to ensure that the 30300~30303, 20200~20203, 8545~8548 ports of the machine are not occupied.
# -g It will generate a chain of OSCCA-approved cryptography.
$ ./build_chain.sh -l -p 30300,20200,8545 -g

For the build_chain.sh script option, please [refer to here] (../manual/build_chain.md). The command that execute normally will output All completed. (If there is no output, refer to nodes/build.log for checking).

After the deployment of the OSCCA-approved cryptography alliance chain is completed, the rest of operations are same as [installation] (../installation.md).

OSCCA-approved cryptography configuration information

The nodes of FISCO BCOS OSCCA-approved cryptography version message through using SSL secure channel. The main configuration items of the SSL certificate are concentrated in the following configuration items:


data_path:path where the certificate file is located
key:the path of the node private key relative to the data_path
cert: the path of the certificate gmnode.crt relative to data_path
ca_cert: the path of certificate gmca

;certificate configuration
    ;directory the certificates located in
    ;the node private key file
    ;the node certificate file
    ;the ca certificate file

After Fisco-BCOS version 2.5.0, nodes and SDKS can communicate using either SSL or national secret SSL connections. The configuration is as follows:

    ; use SM crypto or not, should nerver be changed
    ; use SM SSL connection with SDK

using OSCCA-approved cryptography SDK

For details, refer to [SDK Documentation] (../sdk/sdk.html#id8).

OSCCA-approved cryptography console configuration

using OSCCA-approved cryptography console

The function of OSCCA-approved cryptography console is used in the same way as the standard console. Console version 2.6 and above does not require additional configuration. For the configuration method of console version 1.x, please refer to Console Operation Manual.

OSCCA-approved cryptography configuration

OSCCA-approved cryptography Key Manager

Using the OSCCA-approved cryptography Key Manager needs to be recompiled the standard Key Manager. The difference of them is -DBUILD_GM=ON option needs to be added when doing cmake.

# under centos
cmake3 .. -DBUILD_GM=ON
# under ubuntu
cmake .. -DBUILD_GM=ON

Other steps are same as the standard Key Manager. Please refer to key-manager repository.

OSCCA-approved cryptography node configuration

FISCO BCOS OSCCA-approved cryptography version adopts dual certificate mode, so two sets of certificates are needed for disk encryption. They are the conf/gmnode.key and conf/origin_cert/node.key. Other operations of disk encryption are the same as [Standard Edition Loading Encryption Operation] (./storage_security.md).
