Re: Is CA issued certificate using OpenSSL as good as GoDaddy

I followed the  below OpenLDAP guide to create CA issued certificate using

management where this certificate is as safe as the commercial certificates
out there. Can someone clarify this? I would appreciate it.

If you keep all your private keys really secure I'd consider this to be even better than a commercial CA because there's no error-prone registration/identification procedure to ensure that the name belongs to the public key.
