Your consulting assignment with the security staff has been a success. The staff understands the encryption concepts that you have explained. The latest discussions have been on public-key cryptography. The following are some specific questions that need to be explained in more detail:
- What are the 4 key elements of a public-key directory?
- What is a public-key certificate?
- Explain the elements of a public-key directory, and include an explanation of a public-key certificate.
- Research the tools available to create a Secure Shell public-key certificate using the Windows environment.
- Differentiate between the tools researched and make a recommendation for 1 tool that you examined. Supply the reasons for your recommendation.
- Describe the process used to generate a public-key certificate using your recommended tool. Include challenges and any best practices.
Note: This assignment builds upon your cryptography knowledge. Recall your Security Pro (Module 9, entitled Data Including Cryptography Activities) lab work in the ITAS363 Unit 3 IP. Refer back to your work if you would like to refresh your memory in support of this assignment.
Prepare a Word document that covers the topics in 3–5 pages. The information contained within the Word document must be professional in appearance.
