CauseClearTrust is made of a number of components, at the core are the ClearTrust server processes generally known as the Dispatcher/Keyserver, Authorization server and Entitlements server
Resolution

When any of the processes are started they will start by reporting the version and build, for example:

ClearTrust Authorization Dispatcher
Version 5.5.3 (Build 2559)
Copyright (c) 1997-2005 RSA Security Inc.
All rights reserved.

This is an example of the Dispatcher/Keyserver starting and reports that it is version 5.5.3 build 2559.  Specifically this reports the build number of the cleartrust.jar file.  ClearTrust is made up of other files and this mechanism will not identify version and build numbers for anything other than the cleartrust.jar file.

It is always possible to find this information regardless of Windows or UNIX or if the processes are being started by a UNIX rc script, Windows service or being started manually.


When you start one of the processes using a Windows service, then the first line of the log file will look something like this:

sequence_number=1,2006-10-14 11:12:49:350 EST,messageID=3000,event_type=Server Bootstrap,server_process=ClearTrust Authorization Dispatcher,server_version=Version 5.5.3 (Build 2588)


When you start a process on UNIX either from an RC script or with a manual command such as "./dispatcher.sh start" then the log file will generate the following type of entry

ClearTrust Authorization Dispatcher
Version 5.5.3 (Build 2559)

# ClearTrust Authorization Dispatcher
# Version 5.5.3 (Build 2559)
#
# Date:   Sat Oct 14 10:57:15 EST 2006
# Java:   1.4.2 / Sun Microsystems Inc.
# System: dominator2.csau.ap.rsa.net@192.168.51.109, running SunOS 5.9 on sparc


If you start one of the processes manually on Windows (for example dispatcher.bat) then you will get the following type of output

ClearTrust Authorization Dispatcher

Loading configuration:
        dispatcher.conf ... done.


The following table is a quick cross-reference so that you are able to identify the 5.5.3 patch level from the build number.  remember that many patches are made of files other than cleartrust.jar.
