Projects / gnoMint


gnoMint is a tool for easily creating and managing certification authorities. It provides fancy visualization of all the pieces of information that pertain to a CA, such as x509 certificates, CSRs, and CRLs. gnoMint is currently capable of managing a CA that emits certificates that are able to authenticate people or machines in VPNs (IPSec or other protocols), secure HTTP communications with SSL/TLS, authenticate and cipher HTTP communications through Web-client certificates, and sign or crypt email messages.

It has a forgotten crlgen function to the gnomint-cli text-based interface. It fixes compilation with GnuTLS 2.8.0.

            Release Notes: This version includes a major code clean-up and some interesting new features: OpenSSL-generated CA import, updated translations from including a new Brazilian Portuguese translation, a new, more secure cyphering method (based on AES) for protecting passwords and private keys (the program is fully compatible with the old method), and a new graphic and fully functional toolbar. Some bugs have been fixed, including an architecture-dependent function that could give some problems architectures other than x86.
