PKI fundamentals (Agenda PKI Fundamentals)

This workshop for public key infrastructure (PKI) teaches the technical foundations, possible fields of application as well as organizational aspects of PKI.

The mechanisms and components of a PKI and typical applications will be presented that use digital certificates according X.509 standard for encryption, digital signatures or strong authentication. The legal and organisational aspects will be explained as well as possible implementation alternatives. Here, the pros and cons for implementing an internal PKI or usage of an external service provider are compared and you will learn about the value add of smart cards. An evaluation of cost and benefits serves as a guideline for planning a PKI project.

Windows PKI (Agenda Windows PKI)

In this training for Windows PKI you will learn on a conceptional basis and with practical trainings, how to implement and use a PKI in your enterprise that is based on Windows Active Directory Certificate Services (Windows ADCS).

In the workshop we will explain the technical fundamentals of a PKI (public key infrastructure) an the architecture of Certificate Services. You will learn the procedure of installing and configuring a Windows CA Server, the usage and customization of default Certificate Templates, Policy- and Exit-Modules and the integration of smart cards. One major subject are the different registration and enrollment methods. You will learn how to use the issued X.509 certificates with standard applications like Outlook, Acrobat or Internet Explorer and you will see how SmartCard Logon and VPN can be used. Furthermore, important organizational measures like PKI roles and authorizations and backup & recovery will be explained.
