Is it possible to change the certificate expiry date for certificates issued by a Certifcate Authority?  Can it be programmatically done?  Also, for expired certificates, can it be renewed, ie. I don't have to re-issue a new certificate?

Is it possible to change the certificate expiry date from the certificate authority?  Is there some setting in the CA that I can modify programmatically?

You can use certutil to change the validity period of certificates issued by the CA.

Expired certificates can be renewed with a new certificate that contains the same key as the expired certificate.
