Certificates... How do they work?

I had the pleasure to present at MacSysAdmin the fourth year in a row. Tycho set me the challenge to give an introduction to public key cryptography and public key infrastructures.


We will have a look at certificate based workflows and basic concepts of the cryptography behind it. The goal isn't to make you an expert in the complex domain of certificate-based signatures, encryption, and authentication, but to explore areas this could be useful.




I would like to thank Ben for his support whilst writing this presentation and Tycho for giving me the opportunity to work on such an interesting topic.
