Background

Dealing with sensitive information such as the network resources management has to increase the awareness of possible security problems. The Public Key Infrastructure model (PKI) has been developed in order to deal with a number of possible attacks and protect against security, privacy and authentication violations. It is generally understood as the set of policies and software that regulate or manipulate the use of certificates and of public and private keys. Asymmetric encryption is a basic component of the architecture, which is based on a public key that can be disclosed to anyone, and a private key that is known only to its holder.
