Digital Certificates 101: Understanding, Managing & Supporting Public Key Infrastructure & Active Directory Certificate Services

Sign in to queue


Digital certificates is a digital form of identification, much like a passport or driver's license. Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) provides the means for digital certificates to be used by issuing certificates and making them accessible through a directory. PKI also validates digital certificates by verifying the authenticity of the certificate, the validity of the certificate, and that the certificate is trustworthy.
