TERENA Networking Conference 2001    

Session 4C

Public Key Infrastructure - Part I
Chair: Ton Verschuren, SURFnet bv, The Netherlands

This session will provide a forum for discussion of public key infrastructures. With the introduction into our community of services like tele-education, the need to know who is on the other end of the line becomes apparent. PKI technology provides a solution for remote authentication of users and machines. Its goal is to provide trust for on-line communication. How to build this infrastructure of trust is still largely an open question.
