To support my experiments with OpenVPN, I have been trying to evaluate different CA software packages in Debian. With devastating results.
- command line
- Unmaintained upstream
- Quite underdocumented - the maintainer doesn't think so and closed #355177.
- Didn't work when I tried it
- seems easily useable
- has a GUI and is thus not suitable for very old boxes as CA host
- version in unstable gets in endless loop after CA certification
- version in testing crashes without error message if default values for CA are changed
- version in testing succeeds in creating CA and then displays a GUI that doesn't accept any mouse clicks
- easily useable
- Only CA tried that actually worked in creating certificates for first OpenVPN installation
- not properly packages - only in examples directory of OpenVPN package
- creates CA without password!
- not packaged for Debian (see #141748)
- split from openca in October 2005
- Has not yet released any code
All software sucks. Does Debian have CA software that is actually useable?
