Boris,
I have virtual machines to which I give 768M of Ram, it works ok for few
tests. Of course my host machine has much more RAM and probably caches
the swap. a Bare metal with only 512M would probably be *very* slow.

Although, maybe if you use the (non production/test only) --selfsign
option to not install the PKI then java/tomcat would not be started
which may make it work well enough. But then you wouldn't be able to
fully test the PKI stuff.

Simo.
