In order to deploy and use Microsoft Certificate Services, you need to understand the fundamentals of cryptography, digital signatures, encryption, TLS, and S/MIME. It is also important to understand the concepts behind public key infrastructure (PKI). This book teaches you all the required background knowledge you need. Then it takes you deeper, step by step, teaching you how to deploy Certificate Services and configure it to issue various digital certificate types, complete with examples of using these certificates with IIS, Outlook, and Windows.

Microsoft-based networks - on-premises, hybrid, and cloud-based networks - are used in companies of all sizes. Within them, there are many applications of digital certificates that can be created and managed by Microsoft Certificate Services. As security is more important than ever, and cryptography and PKI are fundamental to so many of these defenses, understanding Microsoft Certificate Services is becoming an increasingly more desirable skill.

Most IT workers don't realize the many uses and purposes of Certificate Services, especially within a corporate or government agency network, and how tightly integrated they are with the Microsoft Windows Domain style of networks and Active Directory (on-premises or cloud-based, including Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud Services). This book will teach you the gamut.

You will appreciate the learning approach presented in the book, beginning with the basics (cryptographic primitives such as encryption and message digests), getting into combinations of primitives to accomplish specific things (such as digital signatures and envelopes), and then trying real-word systems based on digital certificates and PKI (such as TLS, S/MIME secure email, cryptographic authentication, and more). The book wraps it all up and teaches you how to deploy Certificate Services and issue the various types of certificates, including how they are used.
