QuickCA X.509 Certificates
Note: this page dates from our
Quick.com.au era. We have
since relocated to the U.S. and are not actively selling any of these
(at least not the crypto products), though we continue to support
You can use our CruftyCA to request certificates
signed by us. These are low assurance certificates (we don't do 100 point
checks, just verification is via phone
book and phone call), but useful for testing SSLr*
and other SSL based security tools.
For the time being we are also provinding zero assurance certificates
from our testCA (same url as above). We refuse to sign any request
that looks bogus (comes from the wrong site etc), but otherwise little
checking is done. These certs should only be used to verify that the
rest of the SSL environment is working, no one should ever trust them
which is why we do not make the testCA cert available,
See help/certs for more information
as to why you may want to use this service.
We can provide commercial support for Free software. As we explain in
support policy, the fact that you
did not pay $1000's for software does not mean it is not high quality.
We can support both our own high quality FreeWare, as well as quality free software from
other sources such as the Free Software Foundation's GNU code, and
4.4BSD-Lite base operating systems such as NetBSD
There is a lot of quality software aimed at the market of expert
users that have populated the net for many years. Many sites these
days need that software, but lack the skills needed to install and
support it. We can help.
We have worked on and ported code to just about every flavor of UNIX,
from Xenix to UTS on Amdahl mainframes. Over the last 10+ years we
have ported and bug fixed many major software distributions such as GNU
emacs, gcc, and X11. We have also written many Mb of portable
C/C++, sh, perl, tcl, ... see FreeWare for
We have been running UNIX systems and IP networks for more than 10
years. While we do not offer simple system administration as a
service, we can help solve complex system and network problems.
Many of the tools we provide are for system administrators and network
support groups, again see FreeWare for some
