Announcing v0.14.2 of
step-ca is now available. You can get it using
brew install step (or
brew upgrade step) on macOS or grab release artifacts for
step-ca from Github. This is a big and long-awaited open-source release. We thank the community for the feedback and pull requests, our issues and gitter channels have never been busier.
This release adds initial support for Microsoft Windows and a suite of
step ssh subcommands for interacting with the SSH certificate authority, configuring clients and hosts for SSH, and working with SSH certificates.
Thank you to @christianlupus, @NonLogicalDev, @mkontani, @shuLhan!
First-class support for an SSH certificate authority that features SSO for SSH flows. Addition of TLS-ALPN-01 challenge to the ACME api (thanks @ibrt!). Addition of Software and CloudKMS options for storing PKI. Thank you to @josephvoss, @jkralik, @rmedaer, @anxolerd, @ibrt, @256dpi, @Johannestegner, @mkontani.
