I'm pleased to announce the 0.9.0 version, aka "Command-line &
Conquer-line", of gnoMint: a graphical X.509 Certification Authority
About this new version:
This version adds a full brand-new command-line interface:
gnomint-cli. This interface allows any action over a gnoMint database,
getting its orders through standard input. Now gnoMint is fully
scriptable, so, for example, you will be able to enter a new cron task
for creating your CRLs in scheduled time, or to create a bunch of new
certificates from a list of employees.
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 certificates;
* Sign and/or crypt e-mails
For compiling it, its dependencies are:
* GTK+ 2.10 or newer
* SQLite 3
* libGnuTLS 2.0 or newer
