XCA - X Certificate and key management

(c) by Christian Hohnstädt,

April 2020 - Version 2.3.0
This application is intended for creating and managing X.509 certificates, certificate requests, RSA, DSA and EC private keys, Smart-cards and CRLs. Everything that is needed for a CA is implemented. All CAs can sign sub-CAs recursively. These certificate chains are shown clearly. For an easy company-wide use there are customisable templates that can be used for certificate or request generation. All cryptographic data is stored in a SQL database. SQLite, MySQL (MariaDB), PostgreSQL and MicrosoftSQL (ODBC) databases are supported.
