To follow up on this.  Im going to be looking at dogtag first.  Ive had a 
promise from them to help us when we have issues. 

OpenCA seems to have stalled development wise.

ejbca has a very heavy footprint.

something Custom i think is too big of a task. 

So people wanting to help with setting up, implementing and testing please 
raise your hands now.
