sec_error_inadequate_cert_type

I created my SSL certs with easy-rsa. But it seems most browsers have tightened their certificate checks so my self signed certificates and my authority haven’t been working the last days. But I can’t really say how long SSL was down. Chrome decided to ignore my old ca.crt and firefox displayed sec_error_inadequate_cert_type. So I had to recreate my ca.

As I found no good tooling to create a certificate authority I decided to write some scripts to do it manually and fully automated.

Now all my sites are available via SSL and if you install my ca.crt you won’t see errors for certificates signed by me anymore.
