Topic of Presentation: PKI is dead, long live our PKI

Language: English

Abstract: While PKI as most of us know it (e.g. from SSL certificates) has a number of interesting and serious issues, we at Schuberg Philis still found it usefull to implement our own PKI infrastructure.
Why did we do this? How did we do it? What mistakes did we make? What doesn’t the documentation tell you?
This presentation will tell you what mistakes we made, so you don’t have to. Attendees will gain:

  • A better understanding of what a PKI is and what it isn’t
  • What it does and what you can use it for
  • What is involved in a successful implementation
Most of all you get to learn what mistakes we made, so you don’t have to.
  • It will present real world experience, not just theory
  • A lot has been written about PKI, but most of it is wrong
  • We really did do a successful PKI implantation
  • You get to avoid my mistakes.
