Hi,

I'm happy to announce a new release of Djigzo.

Djigzo now has a built-in CA which you can use to issue certificates for 
internal and external users. A certificate and private key can be 
securely sent to an external user. The external user can use the 
certificate with any S/MIME capable email client. The message sent to 
the external recipient contains a link to a page with help on how to 
install the pfx file

www.djigzo.com/help/import_pfx.html

Why issuing certificates to external users?

My experience is that users find it hard to get their own certificates 
(from Comodo, Thawte etc.). Another problem is that users will lose 
their certificates (and private key) because of a system crash etc. The 
Djigzo CA server can function as a "key escrow" for these users because 
the administrator can sent a copy of the certificate and key. Users that 
do not trust or do not want to use the build-in CA can get their own 
certificate from a commercial certificate vendor.


Regards,
