Netscape Communications Corp has posted the first public beta of its forthcoming Certificate Server, which issues, signs and manages X.509v3 public-key certificates meeting S/MIME and SSL standards and uses a built-in Informix Corp OnLine Workgroup server as a scaleable certificate store. As to be expected, it integrates directly with all the servers in Netscape’s SuiteSpot, providing single user log-on so users don’t have to remember multiple passwords to get at the various servers they might use. Meantime, Netscape’s software engineers were working overtime, almost around the clock according to some reports, over Christmas and New Year to finish up work on the preview beta version of Communicator, which is now available. The beta, which Netscape promised in December, is only for Windows 95, and will show up first as a free download on the Netscape web site. The final release remains scheduled for around the end of the first quarter of this year.
