Welcome to CAcert infrastructure's documentation!
+This documentation aims to describe the current status of CAcert's

+CAcert has a public Internet IP address range and some of the Internet IP
+addresses are mapped to the infrastructure systems.
+CAcert's infrastructure systems are using a private network range that is
+accessible from other CAcert systems.
+The infrastructure host :doc:`infra02` has a local bridge interface that is
+used to connect the containers on that machine and allows explicit routing as
+well as services that are purely internal and are not reachable from the
+Internet or Intranet machines in the IP range mentioned above.
