XCA - X Certificate and key management

(c) by Christian Hohnstädt,

October 2014 - Version 1.0.0

This application is intended for creating and managing X.509 certificates, certificate requests, RSA, DSA and EC private keys, Smartcards 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 customiseable templates that can be used for certificate or request generation. All crypto data is stored in an endian-agnostic file format portable across operating systems.
