gnoMint is a Certification Authority management tool for GTK/Gnome.
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, this first v0.1.0 allows the creation of CAs, CSRs and Certificates. It can export both public and private parts of them into PEM formatted files.
This is the first public release. It has known bugs, and it is not feature-completed yet.
However, 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
What's New in This Release:
This version add some useful features to 0.1.2 version: it allows exporting uncrypted private keys (useful for unattended SSL/TLS servers); it requires a minimum length (8 characters) for private-key export passphrase (so OpenSSL can import this keys).
It also fixes some nasty bugs: now, gnoMint checks that passphrase and confirmation are the same in private-key export passphrase; the focus is grabbed correctly when asking for passphrase, so no mouse action is needed.
