    33The ''credential printer'' service is an XMLRPC service to convert [WikiStart ABAC] credentials encoded as X.509 certificates into a text format.  While [WikiStart libabac] is widely portable through swig, some programming environments cannot import the library, yet would like to see the contents of credentials.  The credential printer provides access.

     5== Installing the service ==

     7We distribute the credential printer as a python application.  It depends on the standard installation and the M2Crypto package, available from several places.  It also depends on [source:doc/INSTALL libabac].

     9Once the prerequisites are installed, download the [attachment:cred_printer-1.00.tar.gz credential printer source] and untar it, change to the {{{cred_printer-1.00}}} directory and run the standard pythin install script (as {{{root}}}):
     10
     11{{{
     12$ tar xzf cred_printer-1.00.tar.gz
     13$ cd cred_printer-1.00
     14$ sudo python ./setup.py install
     15}}}
     16
     17This will install a python egg into your site-packages and two python scripts, {{{cred_server.py}}} and {{{cred_client.py}}} into your standard biraries directory ({{{/usr/local/bin}}} on FreeBSD or Ubuntu.
     18
     19Because the installation runs as {{{root}}}, you may need to delete the distribution directory as {{{root}}}:
     20
     21{{{
     22$ cd ..
     23$ sudo rm -rf cred_printer-1.00.tar.gz
     24}}}
