Public-key infrastructure (PKI) is the framework of encryption and cybersecurity used to safely distribute, verify and revoke certificates in an organization and manage public-key encryption. In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of PKI and explore considerations when implementing trust structures through technology and public key-based digital certificates. Explore PKI components including certification authorities, certificates, revocation lists, registration authorities, entities and certificate templates, and discover how certificate authorities (CA) are used to issue certificates to entities and manage trust relationships. Discover how to differentiate between root and subordinate CAs as well as internal and external PKIs, and explore public key certificates and how they can represent the digital identity of the subject. Lastly, explore common certificate acquisition methods including web, auto-enrollment, MMCs, and native consoles, and explore use cases for common access cards (CAC). This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
