- Obtaining a Public Digital Certificate

Has anyone ever obtained a public digital certificate to sign an
internal CA? My PKI infrastructure will serve both internal clients,
as well as SSL based operations out on the internet. At the moment
I'm having issues finding a vendor who can issue me such a cert- most
seem to offer a managed security service type of affair, which is not
what I want. The most promising so far is a cert from a company
If anyone has any experience of implementing a similar public digital
cert in their PKI, I'd be very interested in your comments.
Many thanks in advance,

Are you certain you need a "public certificate"?
If you self sign, you can easily allow downloading of your own CA
certificate. Dartmouth does this.
You will need to manage your own certificate revocation and
protect your CA site.
This might be less expensive than getting a Public CA to provide
licenses for all those who wish to use the certificates needed
by your internal and external clients.
