Digital Certificates are a secure way for authentication and are a key component for many network services access by macOS. This session covers the basics of X.509 certificates, including the parts of a digital certificate, generating and submitting certificate signing requests, verifying digital signatures, and more. Attendees will use their own mac to create a certificate signing request, manually verify the signature in the certificate, and configure services on macOS to use the certificate. You'll leave understanding what role certificates play in IT infrastructures, how to create and submit certificate signing requests, and how to configure common services on macOS to use certificate-based authentication. You'll also learn about how newer Macs have a secure enclave that can be used to store digital keys.
