Certificate Management Protocol (CMP)

CMP is a protocol for managing Public Key Infrastrictures (PKI) based on X.509v3 certificates. Protocol messages are defined for certificate creation and management. It is used by commercial PKI products as Entrust Security Manager and Unicert



Protocol dependencies

  • ["TCP"]: CMP can use ["TCP"] or ["HTTP"] as its transport protocol. The well known TCP port for CMP traffic is 829.

Example traffic

TODO: Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).



Preference Settings

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter CMP protocol while capturing. However, if you know the ["TCP"] port used (see above), you can filter on that one.

  • Capture only the CMP traffic over the default port (829):

     tcp port 829
