OpenSSL and Micro Focus Demo CA

Micro Focus Demo CA includes the utility openssl.exe. You can use the demonstration CA to generate and process certificates and keys during training, development and testing.

OpenSSL is an organization that has developed a toolkit for implementing SSL. A subset of this toolkit is provided with this pack, as a command-line utility called openssl.exe. It provides functions you need for using SSL and PKIs - notably, functions for creating and checking certificates. For details on the OpenSSL organization, see their Web site

The SSL support in the Micro Focus Demo CA is based on the OpenSSL source distribution, and provides a subset of the features in full OpenSSL source. Therefore, documentation on the Web regarding OpenSSL applies to the SSL support provided by this pack, although some features might not be relevant. The SSL documentation on the Web can be a useful guide.
