X.509 certificate request more comfortable
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Hi,
the PGP certificate generation in Kleopatra works great and it would be terrific if the x.509 key certification was just as smooth. Aren't there providers like CACert that could be used for a simple, well explained and smooth X.509 certification process? For sure for CACert there is a bit of personal effort, but as long as it is well explained and fully supported by the software. But maybe there are other free X.509-certificate providers for email use?
Maybe worth a thought, thanks!
Best regards, J.

I give this normal priority even if it is a whish because I have the same whish and already have some code around that would make it more comfortable, especially if it is used directly in GpgOL.

e.g. I want to make it so that we might have a default CA and default Properties that can be configured in Organizations. In an Organization it might even be configured that a CSR is automatically sent to a CA with GpgOL.
