Description du produit
Quatrième de couverture
Digital certificates bind a cryptographic key with one or more attributes of a user. Issued by certification authorities, the certificates protect the Internet by assuring the authenticity of network messages. This technology and its underlying digital signatures are now helping fuel the deployment of electronic commerce on the Internet. Internet users, developers, administrators, and corporate buyers need to have a solid understanding of certificate-based security systems in order to harness their potential.
Digital Certificates: Applied Internet Security is a detailed and practical guide to understanding and working with this important technology. It presents an overview of digital certificates and their role in Internet security, a detailed description of the technologyis inner workings, and a look at the business infrastructure that is essential to its effective utilization. Practical throughout, this book features numerous examples from actual Internet applications to illustrate concepts and demonstrate how the technology works under real-world conditions.
In this comprehensive book you will find:
- Essential background information on Internet security and cryptography fundamentals
- Detailed information about digital certificates, the X.509 standard, and Public Key Infrastructures
- A discussion of the certificate-related security features of Netscape and Microsoft Web browsers, Netscape Messenger, Microsoft Outlook Express, and S/MIME, ASN.1, PKCS, SET, and SSL standards
- Information on trusted third parties, accountability and reliability, and certification practice statements
- Coverage of certificate authority service providers, local registration authorities, and security management solutions, based on VeriSign personal and server certificates, VeriSign OnSite enterprise solutions, and Microsoft Certificate Server 1.0

First the authors were never clear on the intended audience. Sometimes they seem to be talking a grandmother touching a mouse for the first time, driving you crazy with obvious details. Other times they seem to be chatting to the boys in the backroom at Verisign, way over your head with undefined acronym soup.
The book constantly uses terms without defining them. The books explains in great detail how to do unspeakable acts to a certificate server without first explaining WHY you might want to do such things or why you might want your own certificate server in the first place.
Sometimes the book reads like a sales promo for Verisign where some of the authors work.
The book does not explain how to compute any of the digests or public/private key computations, but it does give a reasonable overview of how they work.
For a book on certificates, oddly it shows no examples, or their format.
The authors did a reasonable, if somewhat belaboured, job of explaining S/MIME email signing and encryption. I have not encountered one before.
I do disagree with some of the other reviewers about it being a good book for learning about digital and/or network security. Digital certificates are a small albeit important component of computer security.
I think it will appeal to a lot of people that are computer literate yet not as internet savvy as they would like to be. There are source code examples in the book, but don't let that scare you as programming skills are not a prerequisite of reading this book. (I just skipped over those parts!)
The authors really take their time and give you definitions as well as case study examples.
Well written and organized.
