New Tool Makes Windows SSL Installation and Management Simple
LINDON, UT (June 29, 2010) – DigiCert, Inc., a leading provider of Authentication & Encryption services, has released a free tool designed to simplify the lives of server administrators who manage SSL certificates. With this utility, all of the certificates on a server can be viewed in one central location allowing for easy management and troubleshooting.
SSL certificates encrypt the transfer of sensitive information online. From online shopping to secure email messages or even private health records, SSL certificates have a wide variety of applications in any industry.
The SSL Certificate Management and Troubleshooting Tool provides a consolidated view of a server’s certificates and includes the details for each one: the domain it’s issued to, expiration date, serial number, and issuer of the certificate. Even if certificates are not issued by DigiCert, they are still available for management through this utility.
The Certificate Management Tool also makes it simple to import and export certificates, fix untrusted warning messages, create backups, and test certificates to ensure proper operation. In addition to simplifying the management of existing certificates, the tool will also help server administrators create and install certificate files.
According to Travis Tidball, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, DigiCert created this tool to provide an efficient way of managing certificates, since security is a major concern today more than ever.
“DigiCert feels strongly that managing a server’s certificates should be painless,” Tidball said. “This tool is designed to help administrators manage and troubleshoot certificates easily and efficiently in one place so they can be confident in the security of their operations. As part of our larger goal of enabling a secure Internet, we are committed to providing this tool free of charge.”
