Session:The many applications of digital certificates

From 34C3_Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Description Digital certificates appear in many unexpected places ranging from logging in to Websites (SSL/TLS) to downloading software from reliable sources (MD5). This session discovers those places, and explains in terms accessible to ordinary users the various functions that digital certificates fulfill in those places. What is the added-value of encryption with certificates over mere log-ins? Will passwords prevail in the future, or will it be Facebook/Google log-ins, encryption in the hands of users, the blockchain or something altogether different? Talk will be documented afterwards as PDF on Website below under 2017 Dec.27.
