Is it possible to run your own CA if, say, you are in a university or corporate environment and want a good way to provide certificates to students or employees? Doesn't OS X include the open source tools necessary to do this? If so, how would they be used?

    Hi !

    It is indeed possible to run your very own CA by using some Mac OS X built-in tools. However, in that case, you really would need to set up high standards and a very reliable trust system something that sometimes cannot be done easily.

    All the documentation that you need much more than I could write in a Talkback can be found on the ADC ( Apple Developer Connection ) web site for free.

    Let me know if this helps !
