zato ca

Overview

Manages a basic Certificate Authority (CA). Note that this is mostly used to support the zato quickstart command; it’s not a full-blown CA and there are no plans to make it a substitute for projects that actually provide full CA environments.

Think of the Zato’s CA as an aid in the development phase only. While technically possible, it shouldn’t really be used during tests and in production.

The CA works by running the openssl command in subprocesses against a configuration directory.
