XCA: Easy SSL certificate management

Posted Almost 4 years ago. Visible to the public.

If you're about to handle X509 certificates and don't want to remember/google a handful of openssl commands you can use the graphical tool XCA Show snapshot .


  1. Install XCA sudo apt install xca
  2. Create a new database with a strong master password


  • Create CSR
  • Verify SSL private key matches SSL certificate
    • enable Key name column
    • import certificate and private key
  • Import, export and convert PKCS#12, PKCS#7, PEM chain, DER and more
  • Check issuer chain
    • import certificate, intermediate and root ca
    • they get automatically chained
  • View certificates and export openssl config
  • Check revocation lists
  • Setup a private PKI
  • A lot more...
