The signer constructs the certificate from the contents of the signer's key file /keydb/signerkey, typically created by createsignerkey(8), and the ID string and password supplied by the client (which are used to access keyfs(4) to check identity).
The protocol involves an exchange of information between the client and server, as summarised in login(6). The client side of this exchange can be managed by the Login module; see security-login(2).
Client and server communicate over the Secure Socket Layer device ssl(3).
