Certification authorities are organizations that can verify the validity of digital certificates for use in secure connections based on SSL/TLS.

This class can create self-signed certificates to let your organization act as if it is a real certificate authority, as well generate and sign other certifications for other domains.

(Project abandoned) Cacert is used to generate self-signed certificates.

You can generate the certificate of the certification authority and generate new certificates with that signature


require_once 'Cacert.php';
$CA = new \Vladzur\Cacert\Cacert();
print_r($CA->generateCACERT()); //CA Certificate
$params = array(
    'commonName' => 'Vladimir Zurita',
    'emailAddress' => '',
    'organizationName' => 'Lemontech',
    'organizationalUnitName' => 'Developers'
print_r($CA->generateCert($params)); //USer Certificate
