The Managed PKI for SSL Web Services use REST style message format over HTTP. Only the GET and POST request methods are supported. All other methods sent in the request will result in unsupported protocol errors.

GET requests

When using the GET method, use this request format:

GET <WebServiceURL>?<urlencoded name=value parameters> HTTP/1.0

POST requests

When using the POST method, use this request format:

POST <WebServiceURL> HTTP/1.0
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencode
Content-Length: <length of the encoded body>

<url encoded parameters>

The Content-Type and Content-Length headers must have the following settings:

  • Set Content-Type to application/x-www-form-urlencoded.

  • Set Content-Length to match the exact length of the urlencoded body.

See the remaining chapters in this book for the service endpoints and request parameters. Use the ampersand character (&) to separate parameters.

You can use the optional Date and User-Agent header fields for system tracking.
