Digital certificates are a landmark in security history. Since their introduction, vendors and users have taken advantage of encrypted communication in secure email exchanges, file and disk cryptography, and secure logon to local and online systems. Law makers have taken decisive steps in promoting their applications and regulating their usage. Despite their effectiveness however, certificates still appear cryptic and cumbersome to many.
With this new masterclass, we would like to offer a comprehensive overview about certificate fundamentals and their potent role in relation to software protection, licensing and security. Through certificates, ISVs and intelligent device manufacturers can implement software authenticity and enforce user authentication, thus ensuring software integrity and access right management.
In this new webinar, we are going to illustrate:
