XCA is a graphical user interface for creating RSA/DSA/ECC keys, certificates, signing requests and revokation lists.
With XCA certificate signing and managing becomes an easy task.
It supports keys on SmartCards via the PKCS#11 library interface. Usually the manufacturer of your card provides an appropriate PKCS#11 library. By default it uses the OpenSC library.

When opening a new database the first time, it needs a password to encrypt the private keys in the database. This is the default password. Every time this database is opened the application asks for the password.

Despite the fact that the input dialog may be canceled the database will still be opened successfully. However, the access to the keys is not possible without supplying the correct database password everytime a key is used.

The different cryptographic parts are divided over 5 Tabs: Keys, Requests, Certificates, Templates and Revocation lists.

All items can be manipulated either by a context menu available by right-clicking on the item, or by using the buttons at the right border. Every item is identified by an internal name which is unique in one tab-view and is always shown in the first column.
