A plain-language tutorial on the most important security technology for Internet applications
With major efforts underway to standardize a successful public key infrastructure (PKI) system, there is a growing need among network and security managers for authoritative information on PKI technology. This book offers a plain-language tutorial for people with limited technical background but with acute business need to understand how PKI works. Written by a widely recognized expert in the field, Public Key Infrastructure Essentials explains how a successful PKI system can provide both security and privacy for Web-based applications through assigning encrypted keys to individuals or documents. Readers will find extensive business case studies and learn how to qualify vendors, write a Certification Practice Statement (CPS), build directories, and implement mechanisms for issuing, accepting, and revoking digital certificates.
