X Certificate and Key management is an interface for managing asymetric keys like RSA or DSA. It is intended as a small CA for creation and signing certificates. It uses the OpenSSL library for the cryptographic operations.

Please see the XCA homepage http://hohnstaedt.de/xca


  • Start your own PKI and create all kinds of certificates, requests or CRLs
  • Import and export them in any format like PEM, DER, PKCS#7, PKCS#12
  • Use them for your IPsec, OpenVPN, HTTPs or any other certificate based setup
  • Manage your Smart-Cards via PKCS#11 interface
  • Export certificates and requests to a OpenSSL config file
  • Create Subject- and/or Extension- templates to ease issuing similar certs
  • Convert existing certificates or requests to templates
  • Get the broad support of x509v3 extensions as flexible as OpenSSL but user friendlier
  • Adapt the Columns to have your important information at a glance
