OCSPD v3.1.1
Get the new Version!

The OpenCA PKI Research Labs, born from the former OpenCA Project, is an open organization aimed to provide a framework for PKI studying and development of related projects. As the PKIs standards, interests and projects are growing fast, it has been decided to split the original project into smaller ones to speed up and reorganize efforts. Some projects have already started and received (whenever possible) funds, while others are finding their way to the final decisional stage.

We strongly encourage everyone to contribute to our initiatives and projects. We welcome contributions in many forms. Our members are those individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to collaborative open-source software development through sustained participation and contributions within the Foundation's projects.
