Netscape Certificate Server 1.0    [01/24/1997]

The Certificate System project was created at Netscape Communications when a need arose to generate certificates as a better means of authentication rather than using simple name/password based basic authentication. Released on January 24, 1997, version 1.0 of the Netscape Certificate Server was written in a combination of C, and C++, and used an Informix database for storage of the certificates. The release consisted solely of a Certificate Authority, and was made available on a number of different hardware platforms.

Netscape Certificate Management System 4.1    [06/24/1999]

Shortly thereafter, a group of Netscape engineers decided to create a more robust framework consisting of a plug-in architecture. Released on June 24, 1999, Netscape Certificate Management System was written primarily in Java (with small portions in C and C++), and would replace the proprietary third-party Informix Database with the successful Netscape Directory Server. This release consisted of three subsystems, a Certificate Authority, a Data Recovery Manager, and a Registration Authority. Due to the new code base, the number of available hardware platforms was significantly reduced from the 1.0.x version.
