The HTTP frontend is accessed by the end-users (requesters). There may be any number of HTTP frontends in a Nexus Timestamp Server system. One frontend, together with its configuration in the backend, represents one timestamp service.
The backend is the main component of Nexus Timestamp Server. The backend is where all timestamp requests are processed and timestamp responses are generated, according to the configuration per timestamp service. The requests and responses can be stored in a database for audit reasons.
Nexus Timestamp Server includes a web interface with access to:
timestamp service administration
The web interfaces are addressed using URLs. Each functionality resides in a web application archive (“war”) file, located in the <install>/webapps directory.
