Web interface

The web interface allows you to perform the most common tasks necessary when running certificate authority. It is implemented using Djangos admin interface. You can:

  • Issue and revoke certificates.

  • Modify the x509 extensions used when signing certificates.

  • Modify who is notified about expiring certificates.

The django project in the git repository (e.g. if you installed django-ca as a standalone project) already enables the admin interface and it’s usable as soon as you enabled the webserver (tip: Create a user for login using manage.py createsuperuser). If you installed django-ca as an app, the admin interface is automatically included.
