This 13-video course explores the PKI (public key infrastructure) certificate, its lifecycle, and how to use it to secure IT solutions, while preparing learners for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam. You will learn about the numerous CAs (certificate authorities), a hierarchy of digital security certificates, where unique public and private key pairs are issued for each certificate. Learners will explore public and private CAs, including the Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services, then examine the PKI hierarchy, where certificates are issued and managed by a certificate authority. This course demonstrates how to set up a private certificate authority within your own organization. You will learn to use Linux to create a PKI Certificate Authority, and about the tools available in Linux. This course examines how the CAs digitally sign issued certificates using its private key, and how the signature is used to establish trust. Finally, you will learn several ways to store a PKI certificate, for example, on a smart card, or in a file.
