I'm pleased to announce the 0.3.2 version of gnoMint: a graphical
Certification Authority managing tool.
This version fixes some nasty bugs:
The gnoMint databases created by versions prior to 0.3.1 are now
correctly loaded and upgraded.
We must remark that these databases, due to a bug fixed in previous
version 0.3.1, will contain wrong non-CA certificates, as they all share
the same internal serial number 0. This is a problem, because if any of
them is revoked, the generated CRL will invalidate all the certificates.
This way, we recommend to renew all the certificates, and to revoke the
old ones. Sorry for the inconvenience.
gnoMint is a tool for an easy creation and management of Certification
Authorities. It allows a fancy visualization of all the pieces that
conform a CA: x509 certificates, CSRs, CRLs...
Currently, it allows the creation of CAs, CSRs and Certificates, and
export both public and private parts of them into PEM formatted files.
It manages the revocation of the created certificates, as well as the
creation of CRLs.
gnoMint is now perfectly usable for managing a CA that emits
certificates able to:
* Authenticate people or machines in VPNs (IPSec or other protocols);
* Secure HTTP communications with SSL/TLS secured web servers;
* Authenticate and cipher HTTP communications through web-client
* Sign and/or crypt e-mails
For compiling it, its dependencies are:
* SQLite 3
* libGnuTLS 1.6
