Ok, in this case I misunderstood the documentation. It only states that CRLs for CA and Sub-CAs are not implemented.

Thank's for your answer.

Kind regards,
Manuel Faux

Djigzo can generate CRLs, click CA en then click on "Create CRL".

Only if you need a more advanced CA, like multiple CAs, use different key usage, use your own extensions etc. it's better to use an external CA.
