I'm pleased to announce the version 1.2.1, also known as "All you need
is a giant pacifier", of gnoMint: a graphical X.509 Certification
Authority management tool.
This version includes some bug fixes over the 1.2.0 version:
* Fixing use of an already freed string (fixes RedHat Bugzilla #584069)
* Fixing crash when revoking a CA certificate, if revoked certificates
were not visible.
* Improving warning message while revoking certificates. Adding a
different message while revoking a CA certificate.
* Added Occitan translation. Updating all translations from Launchpad.
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:
* GTK+ 2.12 or newer
* SQLite 3
* libGnuTLS 2.0 or newer
