Abstract

The technical solutions and organizational procedures used to manage certificates are collectively named Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). The overall goal of a PKI is to provide support for usage of public-key certificates within – and also outside – its constituency. To this aim, several functions are needed, such as user registration, key generation, certificate revocation and many others. It is the aim of this paper to describe issues related to digital certificates and PKIs, both from the technical and management viewpoint.
