Certificate-helper is a utility desktop application written in Java designed and created to assist (mainly developers) in creating and viewing keystores and digital certificates. This is done via a user interfaces implemented in Swing.

Features

  • Loads a keystore and view its certificates
  • Extract private-public key pair of a keystore in PEM format
  • Create private credentials and store them in a keystore
  • Create private credentials (user can configure size of key) along with certificate signed by a key of the user’s choosing. I.e. it is possible to create certificates that are not self-signed but create hierarchies and certificate chains.
  • Create X.509 V3 certificates with extensions
  • User can configure the validity date of a certificate; so it is possible to create expired certificates or not yet valid certificates (can be useful during development testing)
  • A light OCSP responder is build-into the tool. It responds to HTTP POST requests (only) for certificates consulting a status file configured and updated by the user. Can be used during development testing if no OCSP infrastructure is available.
  • Create a truststore from a collection of certificates the user chooses
  • Export certificates from a keystore
  • The keystores types supported are #PKCS12 and JKS
  • Convert keystores from one type to another
  • Sign a certificate using a pem file
  • Create truststore from certificates

Citizen Development and the Consumerization of IT Icon

How is your organization empowering citizen developers to create their own solutions to improve productivity?

Citizen developers are regular end-users who utilize low-code platforms, which empower them to create or customize applications which they and their colleagues can use, without the input of central IT. Citizen development software can enable any user to build applications or improve the efficiency of their business processes. It’s ultimately about putting more responsibility (and more technological capability) in the hands of workers.
