Ken Schumacher's goal in this presentation is to introduce concepts and technologies in the area of IT Identification Management (ITIM). We will look at PKI (Pubilc Key Infrastructure) as it is used in OpenPGP and digital certificates. He'll show you how these are used to enhance privacy, ensure authenticity, and verify the identity of those we communicate with. He'll also explain how you can get your own free digital certificate through CAcert.org.
