Yep -- a similar interface for running on our server building our our own CA. 
This will make it possible to incorporate data into the cert to satisfy our 
application requirements. 

I wondered whether someone had done something similar.

Regarding whether ports or questions is appropriate I put it to ports on the 
basis that I am seeking something which is either a port or could become one. 
If we find there is no other way to go than build our own we would certainly 
offer it as a port - so this did seeem the right list. But you are right it 
could just as legitimately be posted to questions.

thanks for getting back to me
