Chapter 10

About This Chapter

A Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a combination of technologies, protocols, standards, and services that allows an organization to provide strong authentication and encryption services on the network. Designing and deploying a PKI that meets your organization's business needs can be a time-consuming process.

This chapter describes the primary design decisions that you need to make when you deploy a PKI. These decisions include planning the structure of the CA hierarchy, planning management of the CAs in the hierarchy, and designing certificates for authentication.
