Let's Build a TAK Server - 5.0 UPDATE

So you want to build a TAK Server? The purpose of this guide is to build and familiarize ourselves with the TAK Server using the RPM installer and connect some clients.

TAK References

This is not the end-all-be-all but it's a good start. There are a lot of guides/videos out there - this is not an all-inclusive list, just a list of "trusted" or known sources.

Certificate error: peer not verified;

Certificate error: peer not verified; error is presented when the public certificate being presented to the client does not match who signed the server you are connecting to.

Revoking TAK Client Certificates Easy

If you're familiar with revoking certificates in TAK you will notice that you have to execute multiple tasks. With this script, you're able to execute this within your home directory using one step and a command.

Random Client Certificate Passwords

If you want to implement additional security with TAK Certificates, this script generates a random password for each client certificate preventing the sharing of a common password.

Implementing Channels in TAK

So, you want to implement channels? The difference is groups are active 100% of the time they are applied. For example, if you're a member of multiple groups you participate in those groups no matter what. With channels, you can enable the groups you need at any time.

TAK Security Best Practices

One of the first steps you should take after building your TAK environment is to secure your TAK Server and its clients. This is not a definitive guide on securing your environment but serves as a reference and starting point if you've just started.

Creating Data Packages for TAK Configuration/Enrollment

Creating a data package for TAK configuration/enrollment provides a turnkey solution for new clients. To summarize as a TAK administrator after provisioning the TAK credentials or certificate issuance process all that is required by the end user is a compressed file.

Creating Custom AD Attributes for ATAK

In this guide, we will cover creating and applying custom attributes to our users in AD/LDAP to apply to our ATAK Clients. Once we have created these custom attributes we will modify the TAK Server core configuration file to apply these attributes to newly enrolled ATAK clients.
