I don't know if I understand your comments about ca-helper app correctly.
The purpose of the ca-helper app is to enable users submit certificate
requests from web browsers (currently, from browsers that support KEYGEN
tag), download and install issued certificates into web browsers.  Access to
the ca-helper application should not be controlled by "geronimo-admin" realm
and also the application exports certificates with appropriate mime type for
user certs and ca cert.  ca-helper is not exactly the one that plugs in to
Geronimo Console and becomes the CA portlet.  ca-helper app and CA portlet
have no common functionality.
