Red Hat releases entire source code for its certificate system


March 21, 2008

Red Hat, the world’s leading open source solutions provider has released the entire source code for Red Hat Certificate System. Much of the technology was already open-source. Now, in keeping with its belief that the open source development model is more secure, Red Hat has released the entire Certificate System code.

The goal is to make it easier to integrate the system with other open source projects., such as the Red Hat sponsored freeIPA project-(I)dentity, (P)olicy, (A)udit for Unix and Linux. As this is developed over time it be able to centrally manage machine and service digital certificates. The result will be enhanced security.
