Without a proper certificate authority your users must place “blind date” trust in you, because there’s no way to verify who you are and if you are trustworthy. Implementing a certificate authority is great way to ensure identity as well as provide encryption of network traffic, data files, email, financial transactions, and more. In this session, you will learn critical why you need a certificate authority and how to install one. You’ll discover how to quickly and easily deploy certificates to users and computers, as well as what to do if a critical CA fails or becomes compromised.
