gnoMint 0.9.9 released

I'm pleased to announce the 0.9.9 version of gnoMint: an easy X.509 Certification Authority management tool.
This version includes a major code clean-up, and some interesting new features:

  • Now, gnoMint is able to import CAs that have been generated with the managing scripts included in OpenSSL (as CA.pl and openssl ca). This support is added to the already existing support for importing CAs generated by TinyCA.
  • Updated translations from launchpad.net: added new Brazilian Portuguese translation.
  • A new, more secure, cyphering method (based on AES) has been included for protecting passwords and private keys. The program is fully compatible with old method. For forcing the protection of the whole database with the new-method, change the database password.
  • New graphic and fully functional toolbar.

Some bugs have been fixed too:

  • Fixed an architecture depending function that could give some problems in other architectures distinct to x86.
  • Removed libgnomeui useless dependence.
  • Fixed problem while importing certification authority if there were certificates in the database generated by the imported one.
  • Fixed problem while exporting a CSR private key.
  • Fixed problems while recovering from failures when opening, creating or saving databases.
  • Ensuring GTK+-2.10 compatibility.

This version is the last expected beta release before final gnoMint 1.0 version. Please, test this 0.9.9 release more as it right now the 1.0.0 will be exactly identical to it (except version number). If 0.9.9 is not working as you would like the final 1.0.0 to work, now is the time to say so!

gnomint 0.9.0 released

I'm pleased to announce the 0.9.0 version, aka "Command-line & Conquer-line", of gnoMint: a graphical X.509 Certification Authority management tool.

This version adds a full brand-new command-line interface: gnomint-cli. This interface allows any action over a gnoMint database, getting its orders through standard input.

gnoMint video tutorial

Jaroslav Imrich is currently working on an article about OpenVPN for one slovak linux website.

He used gnoMint as certificate authority and issued certificates for OpenVPN server and two clients. First he wanted to describe process with screenshots but then he came up with an idea of video tutorial.

You can watch the result at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbInXaFbC8g&fmt=18

Also new "subtitle" feature of youtube is used. Subtitles are available in English and Slovak so you have to turn them on in the lower right corner of the video area.

Thank you, Jaroslav!
