FWIW, there are some GUIs:

but i generally encourage people to use the openssl CLI utility to
manage their PKI/CA, at least until they get a hang of how the process

i personally like using the OpenSSL module for python[0] for
creating/managing CAs.

another neat thing is Vault[1] has built-in CA functionality[2] if you
need something that has a web GUI, CLI utility, and a REST API. but
again, i recommend one starts with doing it with openssl CLI first to
get familiar with the general process.
