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 other applications such as for:
  • secure two factor authentication - using a technology like KeyVault for controlling access to Web resources
  • secure email - for digital signing and encryption of email
  • document signing - including PDF, Word and OpenOffice documents

Crashes on PPC Launch

Version 2.6 crashes on launch. Version 2.5 works fine.

Leopard v10.5.8 (9L30) PPC.

It seems to be expecting JAVA 1.6, but for 10.5.8 that's only available (from Apple, at any rate) for 64-bit Intel architectures. Sadness.

This is a handy application, but for $50 it is hard to justify.
I use the Certificate Assistant in Keychain - it covers the same features.

For a good overview visit afp548 for an article about this - http://www.afp548.com/article.php?story=20080624005724638

Actually, if you go to the developer's website, it says SimpleAuthority is free for up to 4 users, with no nagware reminders. You only need to buy a license to manage more than 4 users.

"Actually...."

Not only did I visit the dev website - I actually used the app. As an admin, it was of great interest to me - my comment was based upon experience.

My comment stands, Keychain covers this for free.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
