SimpleAuthority is a fully functional Certification Authority (CA) that is designed to be very easy to use. It generates and manages keys and certificates that provide cryptographic digital identities for people and/or computer servers. These identities are designed to be used in applications for secure email, document signing, VPN access, client SSL authentication and/or server SSL authentication. Unlike most CA products, SimpleAuthority is very easy to use and does not require any specialist PKI knowledge or supporting components like an external database. It is built on The Legion of the Bouncy Castle cryptographic library.
