What is this course about?

PKI means Public Key Infrastructure which is a set of policies, rules, components that establishes and maintains a trustworthy networking environment by providing key and certificate management services that enable encryption and digital signature capabilities across applications — all in a manner that is transparent and easy to use.

This course provides students with the knowledge and skills to design, deploy, and manage a 2-tier public key infrastructure (PKI) on windows servers to support applications that require distributed security. Students get hands-on experience implementing solutions to secure PKI-enabled applications and services, such as Microsoft® Internet Explorer, Microsoft Exchange Server, Internet Information Services, and Microsoft Outlook

Note: "This course is specifically related to Microsoft PKI on windows, Please go through the curriculum thoroughly before purchasing the course" 

What kind of materials are used? 

I’ve designed this course using Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC), so this course will also prepare you for MS exam 70-412 as Active Directory Certificate Services is one of the topic covered in the exam. Training will be done through videos where you’ll find lectures and hands-on. 

How is the course structured?

Course is divided into seven sections, I’ll be starting from basics of PKI and Cryptography and gradually moving toward core or advance configuration of PKI on Windows Server 2012 R2. Every lectures includes step by step hands-on where necessary. I'll be showing troubleshooting while doing hands-on so that you can be confident to face challenges while implementation or configuration.

NOTE: If you are an experienced pro on this subject, you may skip the basic lessons and jump directly onto the advance lessons explained later in the course.
