Cryptography: Learn Public Key Infrastructure from Scratch

Video description

Get to grips with the deployment and configuration of Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS), aka public key infrastructure (PKI), on Windows Servers

About This Video

  • Understand the configuration of certification services in the Microsoft environment
  • Become familiar with encryption and decryption algorithms
  • Discover how cryptographic protocols secure communication over a network

In Detail

This video course will show you find out how Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) works on websites and help you understand the significance of digital certificates in securing communication between two entities such as a client and a web server. You’ll also gain the knowledge and skills needed to deploy and manage two-tier PKI on Windows Servers to support applications that require certificate-based security.

The video course begins with an introduction to PKI, taking you through the components and uses of PKI and digital certificates. Next, you'll find out how cryptography secures the transmission of online data by using encryption methods and algorithms. Moving ahead, you'll delve into interesting activities to learn about certification authority (CA), certificate requests, and certificate services. You’ll also learn how to configure Network Device Enrollment Service (NDES), Certificate Enrollment Service (CES), and Certificate Enrollment Policy (CEP). The course ends with a bonus topic that introduces you to the process of migrating hashing algorithms from SHA1 to SHA2 on Windows Server 2016.

By the end of this course, you'll have developed the skills needed to deploy and configure PKI on Windows Servers.
