This Public Key Infrastructure – Implement and Manage course helps any individual to gain knowledge in managing robust PKI and having better understanding of topics surrounding public key infrastructure. Moreover, this course is a preparation for the increasingly critical component – which ensures confidentiality, integrity and authentication in an enterprise of an organisation. Our PKI course provides the skills and knowledge necessary to select, design and deploy PKI, to secure our existing and future applications within our organisation. This course also gives a deeper look into the foundations of cryptography and the working principles of the algorithms being used during this programme.

Throughout the whole programme, participants or individuals will gain in-depth knowledge or skills on the following topics:

  • Legal aspects of a PKI
  • Elements of a PKI
  • PKI management
  • Trust in a digital world
  • Digital signature implementation
  • Trust models

After completing the PKI course, each individual or participant will be able to successfully design setup, deploy, and manage a public key infrastructure (PKI).

This course is considered essential for anyone who needs to understand Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and the issues surrounding its implementation. It covers the technologies and issues involved in PKI in-depth and give hands-on practical experience of maintaining and setting up a variety of PKI solutions.

Today’s Public Key Infrastructure (PKIs), widely used for authentication, digital signing and encryption, are considered a core service supporting a variety of use cases and applications. People, processed and technology drive the successful use of PKIs, and in today’s fluid workforce, personnel can quickly shift leaving PKIs in unfamiliar hands. A well-managed PKI system can make a key difference in protecting a business or an organization from a data breach and can also prepare us to meet and fight with different challenges of difficult audits.

This course teaches the skills required to design, operate and maintain our PKI system. The training begins with an overview of cryptography and the working principals of algorithms. This certificate is very useful and now we understand its importance, we will learn about the considerations for designing a highly reliable Certification Authority structure. The examples of practical implementation of this course are given in both Windows and Linux environments. Some of the used cases will show how PKI can be used for among others securing websites, encrypting storage, validating executable code and protecting communication.

PKI Benefits

It’s quite common for large enterprises or organization to run their own public key infrastructure (PKI), acting as an internal certificate authority (CA) and installing their own root certificate in the trust stores of all the company’s devices.

One of the key benefits of this course is the business process optimization, taking guarantee of the security of electronic data and reducing physical paper requirements. Here are some of the examples which show how this course is important.

  • In the health sector, data access control and data protection are most essential element for supplying information concerning a patient’s health record, which is too much confidential.
  • In the banking sector, digital certificates and clients’ data are required to control clients’ access to their banking accounts and to digitally sign transaction orders.

In the defence sector, the important factor is data confidentiality and authenticity.
