45CF Introduction to Securing Applications with DCM

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The ability to secure a connection from a client to servers such as HTTP, Telnet, and FTP have been available for many years, but users may still consider the process confusing due to unfamiliar terms and complex configurations. This session will attempt to take a somewhat complicated topic and describe the process of securing applications with system TLS (Transport Layer Security) using DCM (Digital Certificate Manager) in a manner that will reduce complexity and clarify confusion so you can configure your system to take advantage of secure sessions. Topics being discussed include certificate stores, certificate authorities, application definitions, encryption and hashing algorithms, cipher specifications, and getting these items working together to establish a secure network session.

Learning Objectives:

Learn how to generate and sign a certificate, assign it to an application, and configure the client application so a secure session can be established.
