Join Mark as he shares the top 20 Microsoft Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) deployment mistakes (and fixes).

How well designed and implemented is your Public Key Infrastructure? Enterprises around the world use Microsoft Windows based Public Key Infrastructure for digital certificates. However, most environments make the same mistakes. Learn what the most common mistakes are and how you can mitigate them.

This session will be based on new/exclusive content created for this conference. Borrowing from over 10 years of designing, assessing and remediating Public Key Infrastructures around the world, a common theme emerges. As the creator of the Microsoft PKI Health Check, it was my job to access and analyze PKI environments around the world.

This content is based on the most common mistakes that were seen at customer after customer. The common threads were amazingly clear and often time were easy to remediate I will focus on providing real world examples, means to identifying the risks and tools and processes to correct these errors. Without these fixes, audience members face service disruptions, security compromises and integrity issues in their authentication systems.

You will learn:
  • Awareness of common security risks with Microsoft PKI
  • Action items and remediation solutions for common deployment mistakes
  • Presentation of risks associated with PKI in a Microsoft AD environment
  • Impact on HSPD-12 and PCI compliance with PKI deployment mistakes
