Import and export them in any format like PEM, DER, PKCS#7, PKCS#12
Use them for your IPsec, OpenVPN, HTTPs or any other certificate based setup
Manage your Smart-Cards via PKCS#11 interface
Export certificates and requests to a OpenSSL config file
Create Subject- and/or Extension- templates to ease issuing similar certs
Convert existing certificates or requests to templates
Get the broad support of x509v3 extensions as flexible as OpenSSL but user friendlier
Adapt the Columns to have your important information at a glance

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
