Using Certificate Assistant
Authored by: axelfoo on Jun 23, '06 01:28:46PM

I like the idea of creating my own using the built-in certificate assistant in 10.4. Basically I would like to be able to exchange encrypted email/IM with a few people, so I don't really need to use Thawte for this.

I started to go through the process, using Certificate Assistant and it's quite straight forward until you get to the point where you have to select what features to allow for the certificate. I just want to be able to send and receive encrypted messages with a few people. After I do this for myself, i will set them up too. My question is, should I select all of them? Is there any reason to be judicious and select only the minimally necessary?

Thanks!
Alex
