CERTivity KeyStores Manager 1.2 Released

EduLib is pleased to announce the release of CERTivity KeyStores Manager 1.2, that is available for download, starting today, the 9th of May 2013. The version 1.2 of CERTivity KeyStores Manager brings very interesting features and improvements, as well as bug fixes.

Just like in the past, for the new CERTivity 1.2 version we offer a Free 30 Day Trial period to fully evaluate the new and improved CERTivity. You can request a Trial License Key by simply filling in the trial form, even if you already tried older CERTivity versions. If you have a commercial 1.x license key this will work seamlessly for CERTivity 1.2.

On short CERTivity 1.2 features viewing CRL and CSR files, new signature algorithms for Key Pair/CSR generation and for CSR signing, new Key Algorithms for Secret Key generation, support for file type inspection, more Fingerprints available in the Certificates Details sections, an improved certificates management in certificate chains, trust path validation and management via new options in the Options panel.

As in the previous versions of CERTivity, we have added many features that simplify the work such as the possibility to sign a certificate and act as a test or in-house CA, in just one or two steps, we standardized the country code contained in a DN, we added drag and drop for all of the supported file types, we added new shortcuts for the System/Popup action and for the contextual menu and we now have a Quick Search triggered by the keyboard input in the KeyStore panel allowing selective column search.

In this version of CERTivity we have bug fixes, such as for focus lost on File Chooser for unlocked Key Pairs/Private Keys on Linux, for the "SSL Certificates Retriever" option availability, comparison of issuer DN and subject DN of the certificates in the certificate chain issue, for importing PEM certificate chains files issue and a fix for a revocation status check issue. We also fixed an issue that occurred sometimes when certificates were wrongly labeled as Self Signed, we made sure the date used in the "Extend Certificate Validity" action is valid and we avoid opening the same certificate multiple times in different tabs. By switching to a newer version of NetBeans RPC, RELEASE721, the sporadic NullPointerException issue disappeared.

A lot more information regarding the above mentioned features and fixes, as well as other changes and additions made in CERTivity 1.2 are detailed online in CERTivity Release Notes, and available for download in CERTivity Release Notes PDF Document.

After an internal evaluation of the new version of CERTivity, we came to the conclusion that at the moment, there isn't any other tool supporting all these features. Because our goal is to make CERTivity the most complete and usable tool of its kind, we will gladly answer any questions regarding the new version.
