It is based on a practical distribution and implementation of keys with a set of tools to achieve confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, and authenticity. In this course, you will learn about digital certificates and certificate authorities which are the core components of PKI. You will learn how certificates are created, how they are used, and what benefits can be derived from them.
