PKI based on the OpenSSL low-level API (server package)

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) are designed to manage certificates on a long term. All the data are handled through a MySQL database, which provides a convenient frontend to OpenSSL, and options such as seeking a certificate with a search engine. The actual version is able to handle multiple Certificate Authorities in one server, to publish a certificate request from a Certificate Signing Request, to certify a request, to revoke a certificate and to manage one or more Certificate Revocation Lists. It also able to search for the waiting requests or certificates, to respond to OCSP requests and to seek in and publish to LDAP Directory. This package provides the PKI server.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
