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

  • basicly no use

  • Server Certificate Created by XCA uses obsolete cryptography(like TLS1.1). please add option to select algorithms for connection, message authentication, key exchange etc. Problem is cannot open site through firefox through https, gives TLS Error (support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tls-error-reports)

  • Nice project! You did a great job. Thank you!
