GABRIEL REGISTRY serves as system root CA to authenticate, register and issue signed certificates (and revoke) to Gabriel Secure Domain Registrars.

GABRIEL REGISTRARS register Secure Domain Names as well as locate authenticated peer devices, perform multiple security and connection services through Gabriel Connect Servers and Relay Servers.

The Gabriel Registry serves as the system root Certificate Authority. Among its primary functions is to authenticate, register and issue signed certificates to Gabriel secure domain name Registrars. The Gabriel Registry will revoke certificates being used by bad actors or deactivated devices and instantly enforces policies against any revoked certificates. The Gabriel Registry also provides the overall system integration function by responding to “where-is” requests from VirnetX and/or 3rd party Gabriel Registrars. This allows the registrars to locate Gabriel peer devices for cross-registrar connection services.
