Creating New CA

This has already been done, but just a few comments in case another CA is needed or a new CA from scratch is needed. In TinyCA, click the ``New CA'' button. You'll be given a dialogue box for configuring the CA. First of all, use the defaults as much as possible. Secondly, you'll want to configure the Distinguished Name of your CA. Currently, the DN of our CA is ``/C=US/O=Indiana University/OU=Computer Science/CN=Certificate Authority'' which forms the basis of the DN's of all the certificates this CA will issue.
