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.
