The Entrust Authority Security Manager Comprehensive course is an in-depth, hands-on treatment of the Entrust Authority Security Manager solution. The platform is designed to manage the digital keys and certificates that make up the digital identities required to transparently automate all security-related processes in an organization. This course provides students a thorough knowledge of the Entrust PKI components and how to work with them, allowing each student to plan, install, configure and manage their own infrastructure in classroom labs.
Entrust Authority Security Manager Comprehensive is a five-day, hands-on overview of Entrust Authority Security Manager and the components of the Entrust public-key infrastructure.
The introductory lessons of this course provide participants with background information on the organizational requirements related to data security and the cryptographic operations used to satisfy these requirements.
The concept of the digital ID is introduced which leads into a discussion about digital certificates and the functionality of the Certification Authority. Entrust Authority Security Manager serves as the Certification Authority in the Entrust public-key infrastructure. Participants will install, configure and initialize Entrust Authority Security Manager on their server computer, along with the administration interfaces and client desktop client software. Participants will assume the different roles in the infrastructure to learn how to manage digital IDs for users and devices, customize policies, create and assign roles and organize the user community. Advanced customization will be performed through manual editing of the certificate specification file.
Finally, trust will be extended between the different Certification Authorities in the classroom through cross-certification. Hands-on exercises at the end of each section provide participants with the ability to apply the knowledge gained through the lecture segment of each lesson.View Training Calendar
