Succesful EAC ePassport PKI interoperability tests

EJBCA was present on the Prague event for PKI interoperability tests, since both Sweden and Portugal uses EJBCA for their EAC CVC PKI. The tests were a huge success and no problems were encountered in EJBCA. Interoperability was tested with many different countries using different implementations and algorithms.

Look out for EJBCA 3.7.1, that will bring ECC support (as tested on the event) and a lot of CVC usability enhancements.

Cert-cvc library 1.2.7 released

This release of the CV certificate library, for EAC 1.11 ePassports, contains full support for both RSA and ECC algorithms.

This marks another milestone for ePassport support in EJBCA. The cert-cvc library now has full support and can be freely used by anyone under the LGPLv2 license.

- Support for ECC keys and signatures, need BC version 1.41 which is included in svn.
- Fix bug where outer signature in authenticated requests did not include CARef in TBS
- Don't add caRef if not passed, or passed as null, to CertificateGenerator.
- Translations of Swedish javadoc to English.
